Thank you for coming to my little corner of the internet to browse through my carefully crafted designs. I take inspiration from naturally occurring colours, shapes, and motifs, sometimes finding inspiration in the most unexpected of places. Many of my current designs have bloomed from investigations into flowers and fauna, an area that just keeps on giving me more and more to get excited about. Head on over to my ABOUT page for some more information on how I work these investigations into hand-drawn designs, and ultimately into the pieces you see here.
