About Amy:

My story begins in a small seaside town in the North East called Whitley Bay. My childhood was filled with; running through the sand dunes, teddy bear picnics in the woods, jumping across the stepping stones and cycling to Seaton Deleval for the best ice cream in the world, with not a care in the world and now I am a graduate with a BA Honours in Fashion Marketing and Textiles Design from The Cass and London Metropolitan Business School, and entering the real world. Flamingos, Cowboys, Tea, Mermaids, Mojitos, The North, Beetles, Maltesers and The Gherkin, are my favourite things. I work for a premium denim brand within Selfridges, Oxford Street at the moment and hope to progress within the company. However my dream would be to open my own sales and distribution company, I'm just going to dream big and hopefully achieve bigger!

“To Infinity and Beyond” Buzz Lightyear

I specialise in print design which can be digital or screen printed. My prints are a combination of illustrations alongside an infusion of eye popping colour inspired mostly by insects showing not everything is as it seems…
