After a busy 2 years I’m excited to share I’ve completed my MA in Textile Design at Birmingham City University with Distinction. For the course I focused on Biophilia, the concept that we all have an innate need for nature. This term was popularised by Edward O. Wilson’s 1984 book of the same name, where he proposed our need to affiliate with nature and other living things is part of our biology.
We’re thrilled to be featured in the latest edition of Estila magazine which include previously un-seen shots from our photoshoot at Winterbourne House and Gardens last year and an interview with me talking about my latest developments and Biophilia.
I’m super excited to doing my first Stylised Floral Drawing Workshop at West Elm, Westfield London on Saturday 29th September.
Join me for an afternoon of stylised florals where I’ll be sharing tips and tricks for drawing modern florals and botanicals. As a designer and illustrator my style has evolved over the years from fun doodling to detailed botanical drawing, all the while with a trusty black fineliner by my side. I’ll be guiding you through different approaches to drawing in black fineliner with a splash of watercolours along the way, helping you explore your own style.
It was a great show at Pulse London this year, I was absolutely over the moon to be selected by Sarah Sevier, Head of Retail at the V&A for the runner up award for Best New Product in Fashion at Pulse London in May. Sarah especially loved the print quality and use of colour, so a big thank you to my suppliers for doing a fabulous job!
