I graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 1987 with a Masters of Arts Degree and have since worked in the design industry specifying contemporary furniture, lighting and art work for public and private projects around Scotland.
I become increasingly interested in the use of colour as a powerful design tool and went on to design a colour palette, “Fauvism 55” for VALTTI paints which was awarded a “Living etc Loves” logo in 2010. I am particularly interested in colour placement and interaction and enjoy designing homewares and mens ties for my own brand, niki and printed textiles for Printed and Co .
