I was commissioned by the very lovely people at Selvedge magazine to create this piece for their 2009 Christmas Advent window! I was thrilled to be able to contribute and to have my little present displayed alongside the likes of Rob Ryan, Timorous Beasties, Teresa Green, Alison Willoughby and many more Designers and Makers, some of whom have been a source of inspiration for my own work over the years!!
I graduated in July 2009 from Leeds College of Art with a First Class BA (Hons) degree in Printed Textiles & Surface Pattern Design. Having spent two years in industry working as a freelance fashion and greetings card designer as well as designing my own collections I am currently taking a short break from design whilst studying for an MA Arts, Business and Creativity at Newcastle University. Please check out my new blog ‘Creative Magpie’! I’m busy collecting shiny little gems about creativity and the creative industries!
