My name is Fiona and I am a freelance textile designer. I have been designing beautiful prints for over 21 years. My forte is hand rendered florals, but I am versatile across many categories.
I was "apprenticed" in the artisan skills of hand mixed colours, hand drawn designs in repeats that honor meterage fabric. For me, this is the distinction I can offer you. My wish is to specialize in this dying craft.
I am fortunate to have found my ultimate passion at an early age and privileged to have worked in talented studios for a wonderful array of clients. Apart from working at Sheridan for over 13 years, I have been employed at Kas, T&J Designs and Longina Phillips Designs. Some of the clients I have worked for and with, include Peter Alexander, Charlie Brown, Alex Liddy, Oroton, Kaldors, Bruck Textiles, Freedom, Charles Parson and Seafolly to name a few.
I am impassioned by local artists and designers. I believe Australia has an amazing, inspired and unique group of homegrown creators. My dream is to continue collaborating with these people, helping to bring ideas to fruition.
I am available for commision work and projects and have opened an online shop, where my artwork will be available for sale. A small 'teaser' collection to start with, but please watch this space in the coming months. Go ahead and take a look at my work and please feel free to contact me.
