I am a knitted textile designer originally from Scotland where I trained at Duncan of Jordanstone college of art and design in Dundee graduating in 2009 with a BDes (Hons) in Textile design. In 2007 I spent 5 months living in Rovaniemi, Finland on a University exchange programme. The beautiful natural surroundings I experienced there have greatly influenced my work. After graduating I moved to the Netherlands where I lived in Den Haag for 4 years. Whilst living there I gained a MA in Design Cultures from the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam (2011). My Masters Thesis on national identity in British design inspired me to go back to my roots in Scotland and my newest collection of work is influenced by the beautiful Scottish highland landscape. In 2012 I started designing and making interior and fashion accessories professionally, I now sell my products in shops across Britain as well as online.
In January 2016 I moved back to Scotland, I am now based in just outside of Glasgow, where I design, knit, felt and make all my products from my home studio, plus hang out with my Cardigan corgi Alvar. Products include cushions, decorative toys, scarves, brooches, necklaces, purses and bags. Each product is designed and handmade by myself.
