How did you get into designing textiles, did one thing start your career ?
I’m still in the early stages of my career but its all-very motivating to keep going and see where it will take me. I graduated From University of Ulster in 2001 with a BA (hons) Design For Visual. We got to do a variety of projects, but I realized that I was always more about visuals, exploring colors and ways to use more art in my Graphic Design projects. I was always trying to incorporate Fashion, and sometimes even procrastinated in my University Library by reading latest textile print forecast reports. Looking though Vintage Vogue magazines and photocopying the things I Liked the most (our uni had massive collection of magazines and books about fashion and print, as there was Textiles Department). After graduation I just started working on self initiated projects and posting them on my blog, and submitting my work to sites such as society6 , that was a great start for exposure.
