BA (HONS) DESIGN FOR TEXTILES

Gran, can I get a biscuit?

Throughout my educational design career, colour has always been of great importance to me. I have enjoyed exploring personal themes in my work over the years; using colour along with repeat design print techniques as a way of highlighting humour and feelings of light heartedness across the entirety of my projects.

This can be seen during my honours project where I have successfully brought personal memories of my late grandparents to life through the use of my own diverse colour palette and signature illustrative drawing style; showcased via motifs of biscuits through to jewellery.

I am hopeful that my unique use of colour and humour in my work will cement my place as an easily recognisable textile designer in the future.
