Textiles in Practice

I am textile and print designer specialising in high-end fashion prints and scarves. I have a passion for creating original art work from flowers found locally and from exotic plants inspired from my visits to Sri Lanka, Mexico and Barcelona.

My final collection ‘Gardenia’ is a combination of water colour floral and geometric studies, inspired by my trip to Barcelona when I visited Park Güell. My designs are translated onto natural fabrics such as: silk, linen and wool. I have also naturally dyed these fabrics which is an important part of my practice, being ethically and ecologically conscious where possible while designing with a high fashion context in mind.

Post-graduation my aspirations are to gain experience in the textile and design industry working for and with artists and designers. I am also interested in freelance designing and selling my products to the public.
