I am a designer, researcher and educator specialising in printed textiles. My work also spans sustainable design, fashion design, craft and community development.
I worked for eight years in fashion design studios in Sydney and Melbourne before turning to independent, practice-led research and consultation. I have lectured at Sydney’s University of Technology and Vantan Design Institute in Tokyo, and as a casual academic at the University of Technology I led screenprint and digital print electives alongside developing a new textile print subject for their Master of Design postgraduate degree. I am currently spending a year carrying out textile research in Kyoto, Japan.
I have also worked closely with fashion social enterprise The Social Outfit on product design and creative direction, developing new collection styles and prints and supporting marketing strategies, helping them achieve sustained growth as a one-of-a-kind ethical organisation.
My personal work is process-driven, with a strong emphasis on research, collaboration, skills sharing and an end goal of reducing waste and encouraging a more sustainable, ethical mindset within the fashion and textile industry.
I have worked on projects with Ken Done, The Old Clare Hotel, WGSN, Vantan Design Institute, Per-Tim, L’Officiel Australia, Mayamiko and Art & About.
I am available for custom projects, collaborations and consultation.
