About Me
I have trained with two Trend Studios in Paris and designed for a major fabric export company in India. After my return to the U.K. in 2002, I used my knowledge of design and trend development to open an independent store in Lewes, East Sussex. Selling my own range of clothing, accessories and home interior products, I also managed the production and manufacturing of the products, which were produced using a wide selection of natural indigenous fabrics.

After several prosperous trading years, I returned to Textile Design. My areas of focus now include Baby and Infant Apparel, Packaging, Home interior fabrics, Bedding and Wall Covering. Clients include John Lewis, Laura Ashley, Next (U.K), Pottery Barn, Macy's, Bed Bath and Beyond (U.S) and Linen House (Australia).

I currently use Photoshop and Illustrator in addition to appliqué, embroidery and hand-paint techniques.
