Manchester, United Kingdom
I love bright colours, intricate pattern and detailed illustration and combine them in various ways to create a unique and dynamic style I like to call 'Design Confections'. They are delicious creations in glowing colours both eye catching and distinct. I love the concept of mix and match in design, combining patterns of different scales or background colours, and I enjoy creating collections of patterns originating from a single illustration motif or base repeat pattern so you can chose an array of home decor or apparel items that work together in a clever and fun way.
I originate all my work in Winsor and Newton watercolours on hot press watercolour paper blocks. I am a lifelong, passionate designer and began my career in the fashion industry in New York as a textile designer with subsequent freelance forays in the home decor, publishing and apparel markets, and have had my designs featured in Macy's, Bloomingdales and many other major stores in the USA. Now retruned to my beloved hometown of Manchester!
