Specialism: Designing repeat patterns for interior furnishing fabrics and wallpapers.
Inspirations: Things which arouse my creative senses, urging me to respond to their presence in the world; from an intriguing plant to a pair of old shoes. I love mid-century modern textile designs and admire those who created them; people like Lucienne day and Jacqueline Groag. Some other Creatives that I aspire to are Judith Cain, Victoria Crowe, Charlie Harper, John Piper, Carlene Edwards, Maija Louekari and Angie Lewin.
For my Final Major Project I am working on repeat designs for furnishing fabrics and wallpapers which I am digitally printing and hopefully I will also do some screen printing as well. I have been inspired by the concept of systems evolving, whether it is
’s evolution of the species or the evolution of the Universe since the Big Bang. The juxtaposition of the organic shapes with the bright colours found in supernova and the graphic shapes of DNA molecules should allow me to achieve a quirky contemporary feel. Darwin
I love to embellish textile pieces with both machine and hand embroidery. I was recently awarded a
Madeira sponsorship and will use some of their materials to create some cushion designs based on the physics of evolution.
I am one of the part time year 6 students and so started my FMP sooner than the rest of Level 6 full timers. As a result I am quite well on with my designs for furnishing fabrics and wallpaper. These are all designed on Photoshop and then digitally printed on to fabric and paper. I have loved doing the repeat patterns from my drawings but it’s now time to move on to some placement designs for cushions.
