Textiles in Practice

I am an embroidery designer specializing in creating textiles for both interiors and a fashion market. I am particularly inspired by colour and pattern, and specifically, the rich dynamics that can be realized through the formal arrangements and re-arrangement of colour proportion, placement and geometric pattern. Influences are initially drawn from photographic studies of contemporary urban architecture, from which design ideas are subsequently extracted and developed. The work celebrates and plays with colour and its relationship to pattern. In this collection, grounds of stripes are embellished with repeat pattern motifs, sometimes folded and also overlayed. The resulting cloths begin to develop optic qualities that shift the formality of structured applied pattern into an aesthetic that is sensitive to drape, light and handle.

I am currently working on a commissioned piece for the ‘Flowers East’ Gallery, London, which will be exhibited in July 2016 as a celebration of the work of Michael Kidner. I am interested in working as a commercial designer and also welcome future commissions and collaborations.
