From my studio in Hampshire…
I create a unique collection of hand drawn and digitally printed luxury British interior textiles and home accessories. Inspired by nature and architecture, delicate drawings and watercolours with additions of bold hand printed pattern adorn my range of products, providing a classic heritage aesthetic with a contemporary edge.
B a c k g r o u n d
I graduated with a BA (Hons) from Loughborough University in Printed Textiles. I gained my first commission for site-specific hand painted backdrops shortly after this, further commissions for printed textiles within churches and building atria, alongside wall hangings for the domestic interior followed. I moved to the south of England and began freelance design work, this in combination with my commission work led me to set up my own business. In 1998 I was awarded a setting up grant from the Southern Arts Board and became a Prince's Trust supported business.
I continue to work as a freelance designer / artist and tutor and my commission work includes public and domestic interiors in Europe and Los Angeles.
F u r t h e r t r a i n i n g
In 2011 I decided to expand and develop my skills, and I returned to study towards an MA in Textile Design at Winchester School of Art. I graduated with Distinction in 2012. The skills learnt enhanced my existing practice and renewed my love of drawing! With a fresh perspective I extended my product range to include wallpapers, furnishing fabrics, light shades, bone china mugs and Perspex wall art. I launched my first interior collection, Heritage (based upon my parental heritage of Myanmar and Scotland) in 2014. Subsequent collections, Flora and Fauna and Geometrics are now available.
W o r k s h o p s
For those that love a day learning a creative skill, I am a qualified adult education tutor and run a variety of printing and collage workshops throughout the UK.
In 2015 I began a part time post at Winchester School of Art as Digital Textiles Technician, providing technical support and workshops for BA and MA Fashion and Textile Design students in digital printing, fabric dyeing and CAD.
