Hola! I'm Meg, an Australian print, apparel and textile creative. My work celebrates a freedom of spirit and joyful sense of discovery. I draw inspiration from the hand-rendered aesthetics of simpler times, along with an enriching appreciation of world culture and the natural world. Designing for change and incorporating sustainability into my practice is key. Assisting First Nation Peoples, translate their art to product, is a space I feel most enriched.
I am currently Head Designer at Yogi peace Club and also enjoy creating for eco-minded folk, from my home studio along the Wadawurrung coastline. Recent collaborations include textile design for ocean protecting label Boardsox, print and consult work for eco-ethical labels ArtxSrubs and Nerida Hansen Fabrics, activewear and textiles for enviro-conscious label Salty Beasts and Yogi Peace Club, as well as collection design and creative direction for eco-carpet brand, Acoufelt and all kinds of wonderful for local label Black Salt Co.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Design Hons, majoring in Furniture Design from UNSW college of Fine Arts. My professional journey began in graphic and textile design, followed by apparel design, product design and creative direction for Rip Curl Womenswear. New York studios, Design Works International and LyLove Studios, have represented my work at Premiere Vision NY, Indigo NY, Printsource NY, Surtex NY, The LA International Textile Show, Premiere Vision Paris, Eindhoven Netherlands, Heimtextil Frankfurt and Indigo Home Brussels. For several years alongside this, I also lectured and tutored in Creativity & Dangerous Ideas and Design Skills at Deakin University, a rewarding experience in giving back to emerging creatives.
