About Me

Blah Blah Blurb…

I’m a freelance designer, specialising in Ladieswear and digital print, finding my feet in the big bad world of fashion. I started this site as part of a project for University. Then graduated and my brother saw what I was attempting to do, decided to take pity on me and handle the computer stuff – THANKS! (www.neillyweb.com if you’re looking for a web designer). He revamped it and made it a proper site. Since then it’s been a place for me to showcase what I’ve been doing with different clients and on projects of my own…

Things you should know about me …

I’m Scottish. Born and raised (quiet near) Glasgow but I can’t be classed as a “Weegie” (Glaswegian).

I find LOADS of clothes that I like in shops, see the price, say “Och! I can make that!” and never do…

I do not have the same problem when buying shoes.

I have three Guinea Pigs, Dot, Ally and Luna that I spend a lot of time talking about – accept this because the stories come out hard and fast. I only realise I’m doing it when the eyes start rolling.

I also have two cats called Baxter and Cooper – they are chatty wee bams that greet for attention most of the time. They constantly sit right on top of sketchbooks, laptops and basically any area of attention that didn’t previously have them in it. They also play fetch. It’s pretty cool.

I’m a neat freak. You wouldn’t know this to look at my home. Organised chaos. It’s a real thing.

Coffee is my best friend – a few years ago I could not stand the smell of it. Coffee in any mug other than MY mug doesn’t taste the same. Once there was a moment of complete horror where I smashed my cup and it’s selected back ups… I’ve get to find an adequate replacement.

Helena is a nick name given to me by my oldest sister that just stuck… Can it be considered a nick-name if it’s just a slightly longer version of your actual name?

I’m the youngest of 5 and have many nieces and nephews – birthdays are never ending but itunes vouchers seem to do the trick.

I love sketchbooks – I always have at least three on the go at any one time.

I also love a good ellipsis…
