My new ‘drawn to be worn’ collection will be on display at www.melbournefestival.co.uk 17-18 September 2016.

The collection developed out of my sketches and a love of wearing scarves. It seemed an obvious step to combine the two. Although my arts career originally took me in the direction of jewellery drawing was always an integral part of my design process. Three years ago I decided to focus on drawing and painting.

Inspiration for this collection comes from many places. I am always fascinated by manmade structures such as pylons, cranes and find trips to funfairs a great creative resource. I also love to work with vibrant colours which I feel give the scarves a jewel-like quality.

I worked with acrylic inks and paints combined with image processing techniques to produce this range of luxury scarves. The designs are digitally rendered onto light crepe de chine and crepe back satin and pin hemmed. They are printed and finished in England and carry my logo on them.
