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 thats where 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 follow the trends but also have so many of my own ideas.  Everything I see is inspiration.

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 separated 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.


Im also a Mum to my 12 year old son Ethan and Cat Mum to Olive.  Proud to be a crazy cat lady! ha


I look forward to working with you.

All designs are hand painted by myself.  This is something I am passionate about. My designs always have to be from original hand painted 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 or Tiff file.

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