I am an Illustrator and digital designer from Leeds. I am a graduate of Leeds College of Art where I have developed my skills as a designer on the successful course that is BA (Hons) Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design. Throughout my three years at this university, I have acquired many key skills from traditional printing to digital printing. I am confident with hand-craft, especially hand embroidery and have also worked with a wide range of screen-printing processes. I particularly show skill when producing digital designs through PhotoShop where I have learned how to construct unique, in trend and individual designs suitable for fashion accessories such as scarves and gift accessories. I begin my design process by researching current trends, sourcing primary research and keeping up to date with markets which suit my style. I then create a body of drawing using fine liner, watercolour, ink or gouache paintings with occasional collaging and digital drawings. My illustrations are my strongest point when designing as well as pairing vivid colours which harmonise well. I have exceptional attention to detail and have lots of patience when it comes to perfecting a design. My course has allowed me to work independently in a studio environment alongside talented textile designers. I am available for commissions and freelance jobs. Please contact me for any questions.
