Textile arts and costume breakdown

Patterns in fabrics fascinate me. Always have. I enjoy their stories. I love turning a single repeating pattern into a major piece. I love to design patterns, too. Nature, ancient vase designers, shredded fabrics and more all serve to inspire me.

For films like ‘Children of Men’, ‘Inkheart’, ‘Clash of the Titans’, ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, ‘Captain America’, ‘Thor’ and ‘Jupiter Ascending’, I played with fabrics and adapted existing costumes.

Graphics for films

In the film ‘Nine’, Judi Dench plays a costume designer. Her character’s room is filled with drawings. Those drawings were from my hand. For ‘City of Amber’, I created food illustrations and a series of wallpaper, maps and magazine designs.

Then there was Harry Potter. I designed the graphics for the tattoo shop on Knockturn Alley, some woodblock prints you’ll spot in a scene with Snape, and the Jinx-off, an anti-spells cape sold in Weasley’s shop.

I’ve produced graphic work for several other films, usually in collaboration with MinaLima Studios.

Animal illustrations and maps

I worked with MinaLima Studios to create a range of animal illustrations for Woop Studios’ limited edition prints and designed few maps for Raymond E. Feist’s fantasy epic: Midkemia The Chronicles of Pug.
