About me

I have a passion for simple aesthetic designs with large scale architectural application.

I love surface pattern design but I also like to see it come off the surface wherever I can and love to work in analogue as much as I do in digital,
the back and forth from practical to digital and vice versa informs my work at every turn helping me to create something new and innovative.

I was shortlisted for the I-Dott wallpaper competition in 2020 and have been nominated for the Creative Lancashire award 2022.

A Modular Ritual takes inspiration from the constant reinvention of the Japanese Teahouse.
The simplicity of elegant design has been the focus to create a collection of attractive and engaging pieces whilst maintaining the idea of honouring the teahouse ritual.
The final surface pattern designs have been brought off the page and are designed to be featured in an architectural setting.
