I am a textile designer, maker / artist. I love to work with different textures and materials to create tactile pieces of work. I find most of my inspiration in nature. Often while out walking I will spot a tiny pattern on a tree or find a fascinating piece of lychee or rock, to inspire a painting or pattern design. I studied textile design at Massey university, where I got to work across many different mediums. Lately I have been a little obsessed with painting rocks and have been mainly working with watercolours.
