My main inspirations are objects; I like to find and use quite unusual and quirky subject matter in my designs and I'm always fascinated by the stories that objects hold. As an avid charity shop fan, nothing beats finding unlikely treasures. I love detail, busy compositions, a sense of fun and positivity, and finding joy in the everyday!

I am an illustrator, designer and maker, who loves collecting things, colours, patterns, and the seaside! Seeing my work on a product is so exciting, so I enjoy surface design and pattern-making. I love to draw more than anything and I like to keep that handmade feel throughout my work. I recently graduated from Edinburgh College of Art, and now live and work in my home town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire.
