About me

With a BA in Fashion Promotion and having spent 2+ years in an e-commerce role, I missed being creative on a daily basis. I applied for the Surface Pattern & Textiles MA to finally pursue my love of all things pattern. With a predilection for maximalist design, I’m attracted to anything bold and colourful, to me there is no such thing as “too much”.

My MA project began with a fascination of kaleidoscopic pattern, and the initial belief that dichotomy exists within the form of chaos verses order. Through research and experimentation further oppositions arose, including, saturated colour verses neutrals. The project sets out to explore the relationship between dichotomous thinking and kaleidoscopic pattern designs, using the city of Liverpool as my main source of inspiration. Despite its overwhelming visual impact, can the drama of these patterns be adapted for use in commercial and everyday settings, using multidisciplinary influences and approaches?
