Hiya =] .... This is my latest interior fabrics project which is inspired by British Culture and fairground attractions.
These are my final prints, the first one matches my final drawing then i have experimented with different colourways.

This is my final painted layout. I used inks and dyes to create the same affects i did with my drawings.



These are my black and white layouts.

Chinoiserie 2010


Hi Everyone,
Here is my latest collection of work, inspired by Chinoiserie.
It has been an interesting journey, learning new skills and techniques, and finally seeing my imagery and designs come to life on fabric and through embellishment.



Above is one of my fashion embellishment designs, i used lots of luscious colours and fabrics, trying to create an luxurious feel.
To the right is my first drawing for my Chinoiserie project. I loved using the shimmering golds and the beautiful blues. Drawing this also taught me that taking your time and being patient, is worth it in the end.


To the left and below is my
final printed design.
As you can see i used
my first Chinoiserie
drawing in my final design.
I chose to use a blue in the final
design too, but went for a
stronger navy colour.




Hope you have enjoyed looking through a little of my first collection.

Printed Surfaces





My Latest Collection - Printed Surfaces

This collection has been inspired by some of my drawings from my first visual language module. I have used a lot of bright colors and beautiful shimmering foils to help create layers and layers of interesting detail.
This is one of my personal favorites.
