Nature's textures, shapes, linear qualities and colour combinations, inspire my artwork. Incorporating mark and texture to create interior designs.
Nature is the main aspect of my projects because of its diversity. Alongside, its recent importance, to aid mental health. Living in the countryside provides me with continuous inspiration.
'Find Your Wild' is an interior print collection, inspired by my own previous wild experiences. Each design uses nature to portray various wild imagery. My ability to create textural qualities by experimenting with materials, media and techniques, plays a significant part in my own style and within this final collection. Alongside, the exploration of mark-making, which create numerous new and exciting outcomes. Most often 'happy mistakes'.
Interior print design, is where I'm hoping to progress, once I graduate as I enjoy creating designs which have a positive impact on others well-being within their home environment. Also helping to create a relaxing space with my style of artwork.
