My upbringing as a child was very creative. I was continuously encouraged to explore my artistic ability and I feel that I owe a lot to my parents. My family dynamic, childhood experiences and re-discovering nostalgia is the source of inspiration for my graduate collection.
Within my practice of printmaking, I enjoy designing concepts that communicate feelings of childhood free-spirit, joy and nostalgia. I strengthen these ideas through methods like screen print and applique as well as gouache painting that has become a staple medium within my design process. My style is representative of the kitsch movement; I enjoy using bright colours, excessive garishness and sentimental objects.
I hope by representing a universal experience such as nostalgia, paired with my design style creates a relatable collection that will aid my future career as a designer.
