I am a Textile designer for Fashion, focusing mainly on knitted textiles. The main source of inspiration for my design work derives from my own photography of my hometown, Newcastle. I have used initial drawings and photographs to create abstract drawings using a range of mixed media and surfaces. I have used acetate and tracing paper to layer my drawings to create a range of interesting designs, which I have then developed to use within my samples. This creates a new dimension within my work. I have chosen to keep my work monochromatic to create impact.
