I have been creating unique and professional art and illustrations for textiles since 2014, when I graduated from the International School of Colour and Design as an award winning student. My fabrics are available in stores across Australia, and online through Australiana Fabrics.
I began my design journey when I decided I needed to know how to make the beautiful patterns I saw all around me. I left my corporate career in 2014 & went back to art school to do colour and design, and completed a Diploma in Visual Arts and Design then went on to do a Diploma in Surface Design. I quickly realised I had a knack for this design thing when I went on to be a finalist and winner in numerous award categories during my studies.
I then designed textiles, wallpaper and soft furnishings for 5 star Hotels, including Seaworld Gold Coast Australia
Fun fact about me: I am a mum of three, and also work full-time in a social work capacity. I love that I can give back to the community each and every day, and can rejuvenate through my art which also has a life of it's own. Yes, life is busy, full and intentional ~ and I would not have it any other way.
