BA Surface Pattern Design

As a surface pattern designer that specialises in printed textiles for interiors, I love to explore all printing techniques. My final major project is an interior collection of fabric and wallpaper designs that combines imagery from a recent trip to Amsterdam, it showcases the Hortus Bontanicus and architecture from around the city. My project explores Cyanotype, a process which allows me to layer my own drawings with found leaves, recreating the essence of what I saw on the trip. Using the imagery from the Cyanotype process, I have created digital designs within my collection.  

I hope to explore my passion of screen printing and print making processes to greater depth by continuing my studies to Masters level. I am excited to push my knowledge further and investigate experimental techniques. Beyond this, I aspire to design within the printed textile industry.
