I initially studied Textile Design at Leeds University before going on to study Landscape Architecture at Edinburgh College of Art/The University of Edinburgh where I achieved my masters. Whilst in my final years of study, I began to lay the foundations for establishing myself as a Textile Designer; I completed numerous internships, attended creative short courses and became a practicing member of the Edinburgh Printmakers. Post graduation I was fortunate to gain a place on a graduate scheme with Edinburgh Contemporary Crafts, and from here began work as a freelance designer.

In January 2016 I moved to London to commence my role as Print Designer and Head of Textiles for Dame Zandra Rhodes. This position allowed me to expand my skill set and to work on some truly unique projects. Most notable of which was the print collaboration with Valentino for their Spring/Summer ‘17 collection. 

In recent years I‘ve made a return to freelancing and have continued to produce a variety of designs and illustrations for both private and commercial clients. Since 2018, my creative work has evolved to incorporate shoot production services, primarily in the field of fashion. Through my freelance career, I’m fortunate to list the following among my past and present clients; Anthropologie, Apple Inc, Bruuns Bazaar, Columbia Records, Isabel Marant, Mango, M&S and Numéro Magazine.
