My print design career began after graduating from UniSA after winning first prize at the 2000 AGIdeas Conference : a return trip to London.
I disregarded the *return* aspect and moved to London in the early noughts. While working by day for a corporate design studio, I started collaborating with fashion labels in Japan, New York and London with my pen illustrations and early noughts style photography meets vector and pen illustration mash ups and floral prints and patterns. (It was a thing!)
Through my folio of work, I began to work as an in-house fashion textile designer in studios in East London for five years, specialising in illustrative trend driven floral prints for womenswear. In my "down time" I created illustrations for magazines, (remember magazines?) advertising agencies and fashion labels.
In 2007 I moved back to Australia and began working in the Australian fashion industry in Melbourne, specialising in prints and pattern for apparel, whilst continuing to undertake private commissions and creative projects.
In my working life I have worked for a range of retailers, wholesalers and labels across all categories of apparel from childrenswear, intimates, menswear to womenswear.
I like to think of myself as a designer who loves to create elevated beautiful prints that incorporate hand crafted artistry to commercially driven product. I love collaborating with a range of different people and brands so do get in touch.
