Hi everyone its been a while since I have posted, but I have been very busy creating my newest prints! I decided to go back to traditional printing techniques for this project as I was using the theme of Folk to inspire me! Using four colour-way screen prints and hand embroidery I have created two prints for a fashion garment. I have added images of the printing process in which I used hand cut stencils to achieve the block colour behind my line work! Hope you enjoy!

These beautiful summery photographs were taken by Topshop & Louise Gray @ Port Eliot Festival. For me they sum up a fashion forward, vintage and quirky summer. They inspire me to create a beautiful collection of summer prints!

I have added some of my recent project to my blog, these photographs are pages from my sketchbook and some of my final sample boards. I have enjoyed this project as we have been working with wallpaper designer Kate Usher which has been really inspiring as well as a great opportunity. Will add some images of final collection at a later date!

This video is courtesy of www.famillesummerbelle.com there are many other examples of their beautiful cutwork on the website above; along with their beautiful prints.
This is an amazing piece of cut work and inspirational for my work, I love to include cutwork into my sketchbooks and drawing boards and to see it on such a large and intricate scale is very inspiring!

These prints were created for a digital print project, the brief was "Bloom" and I used my own photographs of the florals in my garden. From those photographs drew the motifs which turned into these prints! I feel the mixture of colours has worked really well and has created a vibrant and fun collection.

I have recently signed up for a 6 week course in ceramics, we are looking at the application of surface design on clay. So far the course has been really helpful and interesting, using a different surface to apply pattern to has allowed me another avenue for my work. I have decided to take forward my futuristic motifs to apply to the clay and have used cutwork, slip trails and scrafito.
