ABOUT CHRIS

It was inevitable that Chris would be working in a world filled with colour and pattern. Growing up in the 70’s, there was big flower wallpaper in the kitchen, Marimekko curtains in the bedroom to Chinoiserie textiles and antique furniture found throughout his home. Even his Chinese name means jade, which probably explains his love of everything green!

With a degree in Textile Design from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Chris started his career working for Bruck Textiles (furnishing) and Sheridan (bedlinen) laying a foundation of solid industry experience in design, colour, manufacturing and sales/ marketing.

Living in Europe and working for several renowned textile design studios in fashion/ home provided Chris with a global perspective and gain a wealth of new experiences to start his own studio and to license his art worldwide.

Today, Chris divides his time between Asia and Australia collaborating with a select group of clients around the world on a range of various product categories. His studio in Chiang Mai; an artistic community that thrives on a sensory kaleidoscope of its 700 year history provides an idyllic, peaceful place to create and be inspired.
