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.
I’ve got some of my paintings and print designs for sale! You can purchase individual prints by contacting me (please go to the ‘contact’ tab at the top of the page).
My work is available on homeware products as well as accessories. See some examples of my paintings on cushion covers below…
Additionally, if you would like to purchase an original painting, please contact me via the ‘contact’ link at the top of this page. Most paintings are A1 size.
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 combining my big paintings with some of the graphic shapes and text from my paintings of bits of rubbish. These designs work best on silks, and are shown here being digitally printed onto silk satin. Two of them didn’t work out however, as I accidentally back stained them in the washing process… Luckily I managed to save them though by dip dyeing them later on in the day which actually worked out better then I thought!
These designs have also been selected for the photo shoot next Wednesday with photographer Fabrice Lachant who has worked with Vogue, ID and many other high profile clients.
I am super excited about this.

It has been a bit of a struggle trying to get my paintings onto silk, particularly because the reactive dye printer keeps packing up. However, today I’ve managed to get a few samples done (A3 size) to get an idea of scale. I’m really looking forward to getting these blown up to A1 or bigger. Stay tuned!
