Whilst studying Textiles and Surface Design I realised my enthusiasm for interiors and my passion for bold floras. I enjoy drawing in a quite controversial style, using a variety of mark making techniques. My imagery can be soft and feminine, with sensitive and delicate aspects, as well as harsh and sketchy to give an expressive and exciting feel. My drawing is a key part to my designs and I enjoy combining the two different styles to create contrasting repeats for furnishing fabrics and wallpapers.

My theme for my final major project is 'Botanical'. I wanted to combine this flora based theme with something contrasting and geometric. I came up with the idea of mosaic and started drawing flowers in a squared format using blocks of colour.

Have a look at my blog for more images of my work -
