I produce a range of contemporary knitwear accessories that have become known for their eye-catching and modern combinations of colour and pattern. I use cutting-edge digital knitting technology to produce intricately patterned luxury fabrics, with the highest quality finish.
The Scottish knitwear industry is globally renowned for its outstanding quality and unique heritage and I was always determined to make the most of this and to contribute to the ‘Made in Britain’ revolution! I am therefore very proud to work with a specialist knitwear manufacturer in the Shetland Isles to produce my range.
I graduated from Winchester School of Art with a First Class Honours degree in Textile Design, specialising in Knitwear. I then studied for an MA in Fashion Knitwear at the Royal College of Art. Since then I have worked as a freelance knitwear designer for a variety of high profile designers. I currently combine producing my own collection of accessories with teaching on the Fashion Knitwear pathway at Winchester School of Art.
