Working from the Pink House Studio in Wiltshire, I’m a designer and maker specialising in printmaking for textiles. Responding to my own briefs or commissions, I use my unique, original, hand printed textile designs to make products for the home and fashion accessories.
The studio contains a press and a large table where I print onto fabrics. I have a stack of screens which get changed form time to time.
Inspiration often comes from witnessing the drama and seasonal changes of the natural environment around where I live. I creatively explore natural forms and the spaces between them, alongside a love of experimenting with the infinite possibilities of colour. It is this process of visual and tactile interrogation that informs my designs, which are interwoven with the informality of nature and spontaneity of the maker’s hand.
In an ever-changing world, under the pressure of climate change, I recognise my responsibility as a maker to consider the implications of what I do and use. With a view to being fully sustainable and part of the circularity movement, I continuously evaluate the materials and processes I employ, including the development of new product ideas that utilise any waste generated by me as a maker.
