About me

Gender FEMALE
Occupation Designer
Location Beccles, Suffolk, United Kingdom
Introduction I'm an Illustrator and textile designer from the UK. I lived in beautiful Byron Bay, Australia for 10 years but have recently moved back to the beautiful Suffolk countryside, UK. I am the Creative Director of Patternista which stems from being born into an eccentric family of MAKERS! My Gran was a Tailor and Mum used to be continually sewing and making home furnishings! My Aunty loves knitting and making craft items, and most of my cousins are always drawing or making something. I studied in London and at RMIT Melbourne (Studio Textiles). I LOVE designing and making!
