After gaining a BA (hons) degree in Fashion and Textile Design, where I specialised in Surface Pattern, I have worked in the design industry for almost 25 years, mostly within the greetings card sector.
Alongside having numerous designs and products in most High Street stores, my career blossomed into several senior creative management positions where I lead teams of designers to create many diverse ranges of cards and gift-wrap, gifts and stationery.
I had weekly interface with many High Street retailers and license media companies such as Disney, ITV, and Warner Bros, delivering presentations and pitches showcasing my creative products and designs.
Despite thoroughly enjoying my career, I became more passionate about wanting to create my own work, and so I set up Magpie Design over a year ago.
I design for a range of products that includes wall art and prints, greetings cards, wrapping paper, wallpaper, crackers, posters and stationery.
I also work for several clients on a freelance basis. I draw on my extensive experience to ensure that I balance both fully understanding a client's needs and creating ideas and solutions to a given brief.
I’m available for freelance work, commissions and licensing opportunities.
