About me

For as long as I can remember I have been a creative person and in my 40s, I decided to pursue this interest by enrolling as a mature student on a degree level course. I have always loved colour, pattern and texture. So, I decided to take the textile design degree course and explore where my joined up creative passions could take me. After graduation my intention is to set up my own business and launch this range of products and to produce work for private clients and the industry.

For my honours project, I have taken memories of happy times spent with my grandmother, inspired by her 1950’s furniture, Willow Pattern China, jewellery and photographs; all of which evoke poignant emotions for me. I have then created a 3D body of work, that celebrates these memories and feelings and produced a textural, tactile and visually exciting collection. My collection which includes rugs, wall-hangings, mirrors and cotton prints, have all been developed from my initial drawing work. I feel privileged to make this collection. “Dorothy’s Life in Pattern” is dedicated to her memory.
