I’m a creative person and my design mantra is simple – to create beautiful, engaging and meaningful work. In a highly digital world, I love creating design work with a human touch – with a hand-made, hand-drawn aesthetic and all my digital work begins with pencil, ink and paper.
My design passions include branding, colour, surface pattern development and typography – especially hand-drawn/illustrated type and lettering. I had an early love affair with letterforms and type – as a child of a generation where importance was placed on beautiful handwriting, I admired my parent’s cursive handwriting from an early age and devoured my sister’s lettering book she had from studying signwriting, a book I still reference to this day. That love of letterforms developed over time and lead me to studying graphic design. I love the personality and uniqueness of hand lettering and what that can bring to a brand – it features often throughout my work.
In addition to graphic design and branding, I am working as a surface pattern designer and artist. I can incorporate supporting visual elements unique to your branding in the form of a repeat pattern and bold graphics to use across your print collateral (stationery, packaging etc) or work with you on developing a repeat pattern for a surface design. I’m available for design and creative projects, licensing and commissions.
When I’m not designing, you can find me with my family, making patterns and art or on roller skates. I also work with silver, resin and other materials to design and make jewellery.
