Cabinet of Curiosities

‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ is an interiors collection showcasing the findings of a fictional 18th century traveller. Inspired by museum visits, historically accurate imagery was gathered, which became the backbone of the collection’s designs. With a strong nautical theme also running through collection, the world of an 18th century explorer is captured though detailed drawings of ships, maritime instruments, faraway places, unusual animals, plants and the tools and equipment used to navigate the seas during the 1700’s. The designs create drama and luxury through the use of rich colours and fabrics. Strong illustrative skills and a great love of drawing have been utilised in the collection to draw upon the shapes, textures and details within objects. Compositions are worked onto fabrics and wallpapers through both screen printing and digital methods which in turn creates a fresh and conceptual approach to print design.
