My inspirations are rooted in nature and the flowers and plant life that we see around us. Through my practice, I have worked to interpret and replicate flowers through my chosen mediums. My patterns often start with going out into the garden or a space within nature and sketching the flowers and plants I find. I then create my patterns digitally.
The handmade aspect of my work is important to the outcome and my identity as a designer. Throughout my studies, I have been drawn to creating for the body and I was influenced by my background in fashion design to create an outcome that would showcase my floral pattern.
