As a Printed Textile Designer, I am interested in combining 

traditional processes such as hand drawing, painting and screen printing with less conventional textiles and techniques; creating curious textures that enhance the design and create something unique. Appreciating the beauty in slow and thoughtful processes is not only in aid of preserving these crafts, but also in a reaction against fast fashion and disposable design. Taking the time to design and create considered pieces hopes to promote a deeper appreciation for the textile and therefore a longevity in its beauty and enjoyment for the consumer, not only is this more sustainable but it also celebrates

the brilliance of true craftsmanship.
