Hello and welcome!
I'm a textile and fashion designer finding inspiration in people, places, objects and the natural beauty of the world that surrounds us. Originally from lovely Gorleston-on-sea in Norfolk, for the last seven years I have called London home. I studied in Essex and since graduating from the Colchester Institute, school of Art and Design, I have been busy creating fashion and textile collections, developing my own style. Above all, I love hand-painting silks and this is now the basis of my bespoke collection. These bespoke designs are developed further to create digitally printed commercial collections resulting in both original and affordable design.
Hand-dyed and hand-painted silk create unique pieces of art, to be cherished and passed down from generation to generation. Originals created specifically for you. Sumptuous silk garments, lingerie and accessories - luxurious items for the home, vintage look lampshades, cushions and lavender bags.
A gallery of repeat prints are designed from the original hand-painted fabrics. Digitally printed on silk and cotton, fabric can be ordered by the metre. Printed items include lingerie, eye masks, scarves, lavender bags, cushions, curtains, wallpaper, post-cards and notelets.
A diverse showcase of previous fashion collections and commissions. Design briefs and inspiration are taken from architecture and film, mythical nymphs and sirens. Port folio includes make-up artistry and styling.
'What is it to work with love? It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth...it is to charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit.' Kahlil Gibran>
