Emily from Bravery Co.'s story and the stories she shares are ones of incredible bravery. Cancer has touched so many of us, including in my own extended family. I’m honoured to have had the opportunity to collaborate on a scarf design with Bravery Co. and hope this print can bring a bit of light and hope into the lives of these warriors

My upcoming fabric collection with Cloud 9 Fabrics was featured in the August 2021 edition of the American Quilt Retailer Magazine. This is the very first time I have a full collection of prints available on quilting fabric. After many years of designing pattern collections - I've rarely licensed more than 1 or 2 prints at a time - so to have

I feel like this year has been a bit of a culmination of years of hard work to get my designs out on fabrics. I first discovered patterns through fabrics and have spent many hours (and dollars) buying metres of fabric - just to collect, rarely with an intent to use it! I first met Nerida Hansen at Finders Keepers Melbourne market

When I first started dabbling in surface design, I had a few dream clients on my radar and Cloud 9 Fabrics was definitely one of them.

Spotlight has been on my wish list for years (literally years, we're talking more than 5 years). I have pitched to Spotlight on a few occasions, but the work has never been quite right for them so it feels a tad surreal to finally have some prints in such a well known fabric store. For those of you outside of Australia, Spotlight

So here’s my experience of doing Pitch Your Portfolio, a course run by surface designer Shannon McNab. Last year I decided to enrol in Shannon McNab’s Pitch Your Portfolio course. We were in the midst of a lockdown, at home and things had become stagnant with art licensing after I had built a little momentum over the past few years. While I have

After what was one of the most challenging years - the year that was 2020 (and who knows what 2021 will bring) - my creative business has been a way to deal with the stresses that life brought. I didn't have time (ironically, despite being at home) or maybe it was the mental headspace and lack of inspiration to design much during 2020,
