I am a Woven Designer currently based in Norfolk, UK. I graduated from Norwich University of the Arts in July 2017 with a First Class BA(Hons) in Textile Design.
In January 2018 I decided to start my own Woven Design Business to work on products, collections and commissions.
Last year I joined a studio space in Norfolk at DesignerMakers21, Diss (Open Thurs-Sat 10-5) where I am developing my woven journey to create handwoven designs and work on a range of home and lifestyle products.
My woven fabrics are inspired by our surroundings, exploring nature and architecture to inform hand designed details and simple patterns. Photography and drawing are used to inform the creation of graphic bold motifs which I translate onto the loom and into my woven fabrics.
On the loom, I consider my use of yarn and materials to include intense bold colour and reflect on the inspiration, while thinking about what is suitable for the final product or design.
I use a few different techniques on the loom to be able to create my fabrics. I create bespoke motif style flat cloth which is handmade into simple luxury products. I'm also developing padded structural designs with embossed forms and structures which come straight off the loom to create more unique products.
Please feel free to get in touch if you are interested in working with me on a design, collection or bespoke product.
Hopefully this website will give insight into my journey!
