“The End of the Silk Road” is an interior print collection of digitally printed fabrics and hard surfaces which is inspired by East Asian animals, architecture, and nature and aims to convey feelings of peace, balance, and serenity.
My initial research for this collection led me to use a variety of media such as water colours, fine-liners, and coloured pencils. I began this project primarily using monochrome to create detail and depth within my paintings. This developed into a vibrant and exciting colour palette with use of red, blue, pink, and gold.
The end uses are wallpapers, room dividers and furniture with supporting furnishing accessories. I see these designs being sold at high quality retail outlets such as John Lewis as well as more bespoke and made-to-order products being sold through established Interior Designers.
