I have been crafting/designing since I was small. Always making a mess – albeit while painting, drawing, and making paper mache, along with other things. Since completing a Bachelor of Design in 2003, I worked as a graphic designer in agencies across New Zealand, in Australia and in London. Cloud Nine was born in 2010 after returning from overseas and wanting to follow my passion for design. My work reflects my fascination with intricate details, patterns, textures, nature, anything vintage, typography and bright colours. My creations seem to fit into these categories, and most of the time they inhabit more than one.
