Currently living in Dunbar, Scotland and dreaming of being a surface pattern designer professionally. I have a fairly artistic background having done well at Art in ‘skool’ and Graphic Design at Wakefield College. Uprooting to London I studied Anthropology & Communications at Goldsmiths before leaving the safety of education to enter the world of work. I stuck around in London and worked in publishing (editorial) for a few years before working in marketing. Moving to Scotland created a new chapter in my life and since being up here I have not stopped thinking about surface pattern and when and where I could learn the techniques and business of it. And then, like some kind of message sent from up above Rachael Taylor’s e-course ‘The Art & Business of Surface Pattern’ popped up in my Google search results! I found some people who had done the course and recommended it and BOOM! here I am. Loving every minute of it so far.
