My research practice of drawings and limited edition prints inspire surface patterns for application across fashion, interior and architectural contexts. With a modernist graphic aesthetic the quality of materials and design are of primary consideration. All products are made in England.

LATEST NEWS: Summer 2017

More paper cutting and printing has been happening in the studio and strong colour has been a feature…watch this space. I've had the opportunity to look back over some previous work in order to develop some new projects and this has been a really productive process; to review some key ideas and recurring themes in my work. I am growing a new series of prints called 'grasslines' see Works on Paper. I am also currently showing work at the RBSA in the annual celebration of crafts, Brilliance in Birmingham. 

My collaboration with the Window Film Company has proven popular. 'Construct' and 'threads' patterns are available to buy direct from them. I also have my designs from both 'Construct' and 'Threads' available on Formica laminate, available to order from me, in colours to suit your client needs. Get in touch if you would like samples.

This winter has seen the Barbican open the brand new, much larger retail space which includes my 'Rhythms' commission for them. The designs have been inspired by the centre's Brutalist architecture as well as the role the centre plays in hosting musical events and performances, with products featuring my artwork including tea towels, bags, mugs and a limited edition screen print. You can read a blog post about the project here. My Chelsea and Pride tea towels for David Mellor are selling well and now available in their brand new Marylebone store.

Once again, thanks to all who support my work...Follow me on social media for regular updates.

You can see more of my work at In The Window featuring 'Threads' as well as the 'Plot to Plate' and 'Construct' collections.
