It was 2010 and I was living in London, thinking about what I wanted to do when I got back to Melbourne. I had all these thoughts and grand plans of designing my own fabric range and opening a fabric store called Fabric Drawer.
Now Fabric Drawer is a place for my surface pattern designs and illustrations. Whilst working as a graphic designer, I started doing a little screen-printing (and started a textile design course), which led me to discover this whole new world of repeating patterns. There’s something about a pretty pattern or illustration that can brighten your day and your surroundings.
I have started producing a limited range of products designed and made in Melbourne under Fabric Drawer, which are available through market stalls I do around Melbourne and soon some stockists. I also license and sell my artwork through an American based art agent A Fresh Bunch. Hopefully I can bring a bit of pattern into the everyday!
These days, outside of my design life, I’m a very busy mum to two young daughters, so trying to find design time is very precious! If you are interested in licensing, wholesaling or collaborating or just want to say ‘hello’, please do contact me.
