Textile Design at Nottingham Trent University
I adore my job as a Gallery Assistant and find that this role inspires my work, and teaches me a lot about the market. I am surrounded by work and people, that inspire me to push myself further and explore my skills.
about the workMy design was inspired by the bold prints of the 1960's. It's an uplifting design that should brighten up anyone's mood, a statement piece that will bring any dull interior to life. It's both fun yet functional.
I was greatly inspired by Swedish textile designers of the 1960’s, for their sophisticated simplicity. Also Orla Keily for her organic designs that show such movement and depth, through colour palette, choice of imagery and how they are repeated.
I began by drawing from organic fruits and vegetables, this print came from a stem of grapes. I overlapped them and interconnected the branches by repeating the design in CAD. My bold use of colour has re-invented the nature we take for granted.
