I am a surface pattern designer creating bright, colourful and fun hand-decorated wooden Jewellery, wall hangings, prints and baubles, which add a bit of colour and joy. Rainbows, leopard print, retro patterns and florals often feature in my designs, but they are all about colour and making people smile.
Although I am probably best described as a jewellery maker, I am passionate about pattern and colour. I love exploring colour combinations and experimenting with new ideas in my sketchbook. I adore retro patterns and these are a big influence in my creations.
I have always loved to create and draw, and after leaving school I studied for a degree in Decorative Arts. Although it was a great experience, I felt like I hadn’t found my thing yet, so fell into the world of work, carrying on creating as a way to relax in my free time. I took various creative courses and slowly started to find my groove again. More importantly, I was enjoying what I was doing. I finally started selling my work through Etsy, local craft fairs, and shops. I've been doing this for a couple of years now and can't wait to see what happens next.
My business is based in Nottingham, where I live with my partner and two crazy children. As well as making and creating, I love to roller skate and go to gigs and I have a large selection of yellow cardigans and jumpers.
