I’m originally from Staffordshire, went to university in Newcastle, and now live in Leeds. I love making things, whether it be clothes, home furnishings or cards. I trained as a statistician but recently I have taken a bit of change in career direction, although I still work part time in the NHS as a medical statistician. The rest of the time I spend working on a business that I set up last year, screen printing textiles and making homeware products from my fabrics. I also love travelling and that has provided much of the inspiration for my designs.
