Some of my work so far....
I have been printing like crazy for some time and my designs are gradually beginning to evolve. Within this design of winter flowers, I have changed the appearance by using acid discharge on black cotton, which gives a ghostly almost eery contrast agains the severe black. The intertwined branches seem to form some sort of abstract pattern, so I am really pleased by the effect. It has been quite a drawn out process developing my designs, and has given me lots of time to reflect on what I would really like to acheive. It is difficult to be truly original in this busy fast paced world, especially after seeing a much publicised design by a current interiors company, blatantly copied by many other companies. Design wise, my work is still evolving at quite a pace.
This is a chair that I plan to get uphostered in my one of my handprinted fabrics. The current choice of fabric is a dark oatmeal coloured natural looking linen. Inspired by organic forms in the winter months, I plan on producing a highly unusual striking design, which may or may not involve foiling to contrast against the black ink.
