As an artist and designer I strive to make products that people will want to keep rather than a temporary fad that won't last.
My artwork is inspired by 'curiouser stories of fairytale landscapes and childhood memoirs'. Responding to certain places with colour to create ambiences of moods, marrying colour with a feeling. The creation of these colour stories is an important process to recreate a moment in time. A personal place of love, adventure and fairytales come together to remind us as an adult; what we searched for as a child.
I originally trained in Fashion and Textiles at Edinburgh's Telford College, receiving a Merited BTEC Diploma. I received a BA (Hons) Degree in contemporary applied arts at the University of Cumbria. Since graduating in 2011, I have been building my brand and products, creating unique artwork and gifts using a combination of photography, screen printing and embroidery to name a few. Most of my customers remember my work by the use of my restricted and delicate colour palettes.
All creations are handmade from the start with hand dyed fabrics, stitch and screen printing, making each piece an original. It is important to me that anyone can take home something from the artwork. This is why the product ranges from earrings up to the high end installations. Commission pieces of all kinds are welcomed, just send a message through Notonthehighstreet.com.
Handmade in Manchester with care.
