'the life of a textile and surface pattern designer'

Design Development

So, this brief started with four objects….


– A seed head
– A bloom
– A Peacock feather
– A frame


And then came my inspiration board…

And two whole sketchbooks FULL of research, sketches…..

and initial design ideas.

I scanned my favorite motifs, textures and images, into the computer for further design development….

where it is easy to manipulate, add layers and change colors of my designs.

I keep experimenting and developing my ideas….

until finally one will stop me in my tracks…

and take me to that ‘happy’ place x
