After gaining a BA (Hons) in Printed textiles at Edinburgh College of Art I went on to receive a MA at the Royal College of Art – graduating in 2000. After the success of my graduation exhibition I decided to set up my own business initially selling to stores such as Designers Guild and VV Rouleaux.
After receiving mentoring from the Crafts Council, I explored the American market and took part in the NY Now trade exhibition. An exhibition I would return to year after year building up clients such as the New York Museum of Art and Design, The American Folk Art Museum and The San Francisco Museum of Craft and Design.
I also took part in Craft Scotland’s recent collaboration with the American Craft’s Council and exhibited at their large retail event in Baltimore.
I have also been a regular exhibitor at retail shows in the UK including the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair in Manchester, The Contemporary Craft Festival in Bovey Tracey, Lustre in Nottingham and Flock in Banchory.
I have also taken part in Top Drawer London for the last 4 years, through which I have built up a large range of UK stockists including the V&A Dundee!
