About me

I am a 2020 graduate from the University of Brighton, graduating with a BA (hons) Degree in Textile Design with Business Studies, where I specialised in printed textiles and surface design. I am passionate about textile design and traditional printing and dyeing techniques, as well as drawing, illustration and engaging in the wider art and design scene. My design process starts with drawing, painting and mark making, then progresses to centre around mixing acid dye powders to dye a range of silk fabrics and creating unique recipes of acid dye pastes used to screen print my designs onto fabric. I am confident working independently in the print room mixing acid, direct and disperse dye powder to dye a wide range of fabrics, as well as following recipes and mixing dye pastes to screen print designs onto fabric. I have knowledge and experience screen printing with dischargeable acid dye pastes with either exposed screens or using hand cut stencils. I also have experience painting directly onto screens using acid dyes. I am confident stripping, coating and exposing screens, executing cut-throughs to create repeated designs, as well as scaling up dye paste recipes and hand dyeing larger quantities of fabric. Alongside screen printed samples I use Adobe Photoshop to develop drawings and paintings into uplifting collections of digital print designs, suitable for both fashion and interior projects.
