I'm a freelance Surface Pattern Designer & Illustrator based in Manchester, in the UK.
I take my inspiration from my passion for mid-century design, the colours and patterns of the 1960s and post-war modernist architecture.
I create bold and unique designs and have licensed and sold my designs worldwide.
I'm a creative and versatile designer and I love the challenge and excitement of a new project.
My clients include Anderson Entertainment, Tim Burgess, Rega Research, Dave Rowntree and Tom & Teddy.
For more information about commissions, collaborations and licensing my work please contact me.
As a child, I loved colouring in. I once sent a picture to Tony Hart’s Gallery. It wasn’t chosen but that didn’t stop me wanting to be an artist when I grew up.
I studied Surface Pattern Design at University over 20 years ago. At that time all work was hand drawn and used colour separation. Computers were hardly used apart from one session a week where we learnt the very basic Paint program. I retrained in 2014 and launched my studio in 2015.
My work has been featured in many publications, including Ideal Home, House Beautiful, Stella, The Lady, Real Homes and The Observer.
I work from my home studio with my assistant, Pete the cat, who loves to oversee the printer and steal paper from the bin.
