Hey! And welcome to my page! I am a textiles designer born in Spain, raised in Bristol and currently living in Birmingham. By day I design textile prints for fashion which is super fast paced and exciting, whilst my evenings are spent illustrating customised portraits for clients on a far more personal level - I love that I get the best of both worlds!
Sometimes there is no better gift than a handmade one- I started creating portraits for family and friends as birthday gifts, as an excuse to play on my new iPad Pro. I hand draw every element using procreate from photos. I am able to take people/layout/hair/clothes etc (in fact just about anything!) from numerous photographs and merge them together to create the ideal portrait. I also like to put my textile design skills to good use and draw peoples favourite flowers or motifs in the background to give it that final decorative touch.
As you have probably guessed, my first love is for textile design- I just can’t get enough of pattern! Even though I am a floral fanatic I have worked with many companies each with a completely different brief. Sometimes it's about how quickly you can get the job done but nothing beats a hand painted/drawn design in my eyes.
