Hi followers. I have some news! I’ve got back into painting, and really enjoying it. My most recent painting was a large whale with a swimmer in the depths of the ocean. The motive behind this painting was mainly my love for the sea and open water swimming. I also think that the whale of all sea life is the most magnificent and peaceful. I do hope it brings peace and happiness to those that see it, considering everything that is going on right now. I have also managed to sell this piece to a lovely lady in the UK (pictured below) who also has a passion for open water swimming. She loves it and has put the painting in her very cool sea themed kitchen! I’d like to do a jellyfish next, so watch this space. Have a great weekend folks.
A friend of mine went to Morocco to visit her boyfriend and took these awesome photos of him in the t-shirt I designed for Brakeburn. Doesn’t he look cool!
One of the graphics I designed for Brakeburn’s AW19 collection is pictured here on these T-shirt’s. Worn by a sailing team competing at a world championship event.
A number of prints that I have designed in-house for Brakeburn’s SS19 collection are now available to view through the portfolio link on my website!

The Art and Design Degree show at De Montfort University is well underway! Not long until it’s over though, so make sure you come and see the talent of the amazing designers and artists across the University before this Thursday.
It’s been really exciting for me as I have been able to showcase my collection to textile industries and gain great contacts. Hopefully this will lead to some experience within this industry, helping me to get where I aspire to be!
In other news, I have been selected to showcase my collection at New Designers this year in London! This will be at the Business Design Centre from the 28th to the 1st of July. Very excited about this!
My final major project, ‘Favela’, is done! It’s been a long and tiring journey but I’ve enjoyed it so much, and I can’t wait to see what is in store for me in the near future.
After having some well earned rest, my plan is to continue creating designs that excite and encourage me to fulfil my true potential as a Printed Textile Designer.
I photographed some of my final designs today for portfolio use. I used my course mates flat because the Uni was closed (bank holiday), but it actually worked out okay! Thanks Alex! >click here to see her website!<
I’ll be handing in my final collection in about a weeks time… watch this space!
I’ve been using Mapper today to create some visualisations. It’s exciting to see what my designs would look like if I made them into garments. My collection mainly features baggy t-shirts and light shirts.
