I love living and working by the sea - especially when the days get longer and I can walk to the beach to catch the sunset. Designing with an outdoor lifestyle focus, we’re lucky to have so much inspiration from the ever-changing North Devon coastline and countryside on our doorstep. I have always been into print, pattern and colour; I think graphics can really help to tell the stories of each season. You can usually find me creating floral repeats or drawing mystical mandalas and I love the process from hand-drawn designs on paper, through to finished products - spotting my Saltrock designs out in the wild never gets old! SS22’s ‘Brave the Wave’ womenswear story is one of my favourites for this season and I was inspired by the increasing popularity for females getting out into the water and enjoying the many benefits that the sea has to offer. Surfing, paddle boarding, wild swimming or just dipping a toe in – I’m planning to get out there myself much more this Summer!
