I've always loved to paint and design from an early age and this really is my dream job.  

I studied Surface Pattern Design at Huddersfield University and there my journey into design started.

After working for a number of Design Studios I set up on my own in 2003.  I have even more passion now for creating designs and seeing them on products.

My designs are very commercial and I'm known in the industry for being hard working and that all my design originate from my own hand painted artwork.  I look at the trends but also have so many ideas from inspiration I take from everywhere.  

My love of birds and nature can be seen in my designs. My other influences are my favourite artist Gustav Klimt and my love of oriental paintings.

I have invested in AVA CAD CAM so all designs are colour seperated ready to print digitally.  I love scanning in my artwork and the creating the designs.

I am very passionate in design and love to see my artwork on the final product.  I enjoy working with my customers to develop their new ranges and collections.  Im lucky to work with the lots of great bedding, curtain and wallpaper manufactures and retailers.  Both here in the UK and abroad.

My 'real' job is being a  Mum to my 10 year old son, Ethan

All designs are hand painted by myself.   This is something I am passionate about my designs always have to be from original art.  After investing in the AVA CAD CAM software artwork can be scanned in and put into repeat.  


All designs can easily be re-coloured using pantones. Sizes and scale can easily be changed to suit customers needs.  

All designs are in colour seperated layers ready to send to print in Jpegs.

Designs can also be shown on product images.  Making designs selections easier for your customers.
