How did you learn to draw some amazing paintings?
I always wanted to be an artist as a child, I loved to draw and paint and make things so studying textile design at art school was the perfect fit for me, very creative with plenty of drawing and painting.
Have you always worked in design?
I have been designing commercially for over 20 years now, I love the fact that my career is all about doing what I love best. Everyday is different, it never get’s dull and there is always a challenge.
How long have you been at Matalan?
I have been working with matalan for 12 years and I am the Design Manager for the Homeware team. I really enjoy working with homeware, there is always a variety of product to design and trends to develop. Im currently designing our autumn winter trends. There are some fantastic prints coming up in winter too! I’m so happy when the ranges look great and our customers are happy. What could be better!
