SURFACE PATTERN & TEXTILES

ABOUT TIA

My major project has been inspired by the natural landscape, this collection has been created around seasonal foliage and fauna, a visit to the National Botanical Gardens Wales, and to coastal areas. The designs bring a sense of personal experience from being present in those spaces and places. 

I would like to gain employment within the design industry and learn new creative skills to enhance my current skill set. Travelling is something I have always enjoyed. I would like to take drawing inspiration from other places to gather ideas.

Surface pattern has allowed me to build on my knowledge and improve my drawing skills. It has enabled me to develop my own unique style of pattern making. The skills and knowledge gained from Surface Pattern have enhanced my design ability and digital skills enormously.
