Her designs are aesthetically innovative, exploring unconventional motifs and ideas of contrast through a combination of the hand drawn and graphic line. Her background in illustration and graphic design has provided her with a unique outlook on print design, with a degree in illustration from the University of Brighton. During her time at the RCA she was awarded 1st prize in the Graham & Brown Wallpaper Design competition, and joint 1st prize for the Dorma Textile Design award.
