Tell us a bit about yourself…

I graduated from the University of Hertfordshire with a BA Hons degree in Graphic Design with Illustration.

I specialise in surface design, textiles, packaging, giftware, stationery and greeting cards. I work mainly with lino and screen print as I love the handmade feel it produces and the unpredictable nature of the process.

What are your inspirations?

I often stumble upon inspiration on a daily basis but I am very influenced by nature, the seaside, flowers, fashion, colours, patterns, handmade and old-fashioned items, stationery… And anything a bit unusual!

What is your favourite piece of work you have produced?

My seaside lino prints, as they are linked very much to myself and my environment.

I live right on the coast of Suffolk and have always drawn inspiration from the sea, so these are very personal to me and bring back a lot of nostalgia.

At the moment I am working on extending these prints and starting my own range of products.

Who is your favourite ‘creative’ in your chosen field?

There are many within my creative field who I find to be an inspiration – there are so many amazingly creative people out there!
