"I am a print and material-led designer with a strong eye for detail and colour. I have recently graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a First Class Honours Degree. I exhibited my collections at New Designers and Texprint, both in London and will be exhibiting at Premiere Vision Paris. I am inspired by my urban surroundings and particularly drawn to highlighting the beauty in the unconsidered, everyday, overlooked objects, textures and shapes that go unnoticed in our day-to-day lives. My findings are recorded through photography and observational drawing which I then manipulate in abstract ways using various materials to create large-scale collages and bold graphic patterns that I translate onto silk-screens. Creating striking, sophisticated, fresh colour is an important part in my work. New and exciting colour combinations are created through my knowledge and control of dye which I layer, conceal, reverse and add to, to create more real and vibrant colours than is possible to render digitally.

Constant experimentation, risk-taking and engaging in a hands-on approach is key to this process of design. This approach along with meticulous research allows me to create distinctive luxury fabrics with a hint of playfulness.

Because of the colours I use and handcrafted shapes in my collections, my designs are suited to both an interior and fashion context."
