graduated in 2009 with a first class hons degree in textile design (specialising inprintedtextiles). Since then, I've worked at a creative studio for 6 years printing a range of clothing, skateboards and interior textiles, while also pursuing my own personal projects. I now work on a purely freelance basis, taking on varying illustration, print and design projects and commissions. I really enjoy creating personal and bespoke artwork, specific to each person, client or workshop. I make printed textiles and products largely inspired by animals and taxidermy. Being brought up around many domestic and wild animals, rescued and fostered, they have become the main features of my work and everyday inspiration. I work closely with ethical taxidermist Jazmine Miles- Long, who allows me to draw and study her animals up close so I can capture the hidden details and unusual positions and characteristics. Both being avid animals lovers, all of the animals used have died from natural causes. I also run screen printing, lino printing, textiles and art workshops with clients such as Vans, Lovenskate and Aestheticodes. Teaching children and adults of all ages and abilities how to use their hands and be creative is a huge focus of my work. Myself and artist Liz Jeal run frequent print and make workshops.
