Textiles in Practice
BA (Hons)

I create print designs for wallpaper, soft furnishings and home accessories using digital and screen-print techniques. Combining modern and traditional processes results in bold, cohesive home ware collections suitable for a high-end interiors market.

Designing for me is a passion, and I am particularly interested by my surroundings, both natural and man-made; the colours, patterns and objects found in my home were the inspiration for this body of work.

Drawing is vital to my practice; it adds texture, character and depth to digital designs and brings an original flavour to my screen prints. Digitally I combine hand drawn and photographic imagery to form colourful, layered designs for paper and fabric, some of which are embellished with flock or foil to create eye-catching, contemporary pieces.
