A pom pom dog when I was 5 or 6 years old. My mum used to buy my sisters and I all sorts of crafty kits when we were little. It was SO much fun.
I've always been creative, always doodling on things and making things in my spare time. I really began my creative journey at art school, I went to Chelsea School of Art & Design to study textile design and fell in love with fabric and print making.
I have so many it;s so hard to pick. One of my current favourites is the wall hanging storage hanger in my book How to Print Fabric. It's made of heavy weight felt and has linen pockets with printed number details. I love it and use it all the time.
I am always exploring, whether it's visiting new exhibitions, picking up new (and old) books or going outdoors and collecting things I find. I love nature, it's a huge influence and an endless source of inspiration.
I adore Studio Emma Odenkirchen's colourful jewellery and Eleanor Bolton's rope plant hangers are also on my wish lists!
I'd really like to get my hands on a weaving loom. I've got the weaving bug after being lucky enough to be invited to one of Peas and Needles brilliant workshops recently. I made a wall hanging that I absolutely love and really want to make one for everyone I know this Christmas, so that's right at the top of the list!
I love making things and I think i'll never get bored of it but I do also try and see friends/ family and do as many fun things as I can think of when I do have some time off. Mostly all of these involve eating as i'm really spoilt for choice living in East London. There's a great new bar or restaurant popping up every week it seems so always an excuse to enjoy some tasty food!
I've been keeping very busy with my most recent collaboration with Sew and So, the'll be launching a brand new range of my designs as embroidery kits. I've hand screen printed a limited edition of designs onto fabric from my new adult colouring in book Scandia so that you can colour in using thread. The idea is to not be restricted by following a pattern and to instead 'colour with thread' it's so relaxing and echoes the ethos of the book with its focus on mindfulness.
How gorgeous is the Scandia book!!! and I as a print fan, Zeena's printing is super lovely and her book How to Print Fabric is amazing. I can't wait to see what is coming up next for Zeena as she is one very cool chick!
