Hi. My name is Simone and I am a Melbourne based textile designer.

In 2014 I completed my studies in Textile Design at RMIT after having a career as a nurse for 15 years. I have always loved textiles, pattern and colour and I wanted to do something to satisfy my creative cravings.

I have not regretted my sea change once!

My designs begin as hand drawn sketches and end up on silk screens that I print by hand in my West Melbourne studio.

I am greatly inspired by the pure joy and freedom of riding my bike around the streets of Melbourne. The landscape of my urban surrounds informs my playful and illustrative designs and I love the unique quality of hand printing and the beauty in imperfection.

I understand the important role designers can play in reducing the environmental impact of the products they create, so I carefully select high quality and hard wearing sustainable materials. My love of nature drives the desire to promote a symbiotic relationship between design and the environment.

All inks are water based, eco friendly and custom mixed by me. They are printed on sustainable and durable base cloths such as linen, organic cotton and hemp.

If you have any questions regarding my work or possible collaborations,

please get in touch with me via the contact page or by emailing
