Having trained at West Surrey College of Art, Farnham, then graduating from the Royal College of Art London, Trisha launched her first hand-painted scarf collection at the Chelsea crafts fair (now Origin). She has been selling her scarves and cushions to stores, boutiques and galleries throughout the U.K., Japan and the U.S.A. Her clients include Liberty and Heals in London, Barneys Japan, Nordstrom U.S.A. the Guggenheim museum and Barneys New York.
She has also been commissioned by private and corporate clients to create wall hangings, curtain fabrics and interior accessories. Jon Snow can be seen wearing her painted silk ties.
The hallmark of Trisha's work is her passion for colour and pattern inspired by her love of gardening and architecture. This has led her to produce bold striking distinctive screen prints, all designed and printed by Trisha in her South London studio with the help of two wonderful machinists who help with the making in busy times.
Pea pods, poppies, daisies, Echinacea stripes, spots, dots are all featured on her new collection of scarves and cushions printed on iridescent velvet textured silks and beautiful Irish linens.
