HIYA, I'M SOPHIE!

Welcome to my little internet space. 

I am a textile designer who specialises in printed textiles. The majority of my inspiration comes from my surrounding landscapes, whether that be the stunning Cornish views or the rolling hills of my home in Somerset. I appreciate their colours and traditions, hoping to capture and express characteristics through my painted designs.

Predominantly I work by hand, painting seamless repeat patterns and artworks using gouache. Recently I have delved into lino printing. I appreciate the organic forms and textures they produce.

2018 - 2021: First Class BA(Hons) Textile Design at Falmouth University

2021: Shortlisted - New Designers Liberty Fabric Award

2nd Prize - Bradford Textile Society P1 Design Competition

Commendation  - Bradford Textile Society P2 Design Competition
