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.
  • Exploring South Indian Landscapes
    Exploring South Indian LandscapesMy degree collection is a celebration of the beautiful landscapes, elaborate temples, historic monuments and stunning tropical scenery I photographed during a trip around southern India. Whilst creating my designs and screen-printed fabric samples I worked closely with my travel photography to determine an emotive colour palette, to evoke feelings of warmth and nostalgia and to communicate romantic sunsets, exotic beaches and backwaters, and tropical natural forms.
  • Hand Painted Silk Fabrics
    Hand Painted Silk FabricsTo create these expressive paintings on fabric I mixed acid dyes with water to the consistency of drawing inks which I then painted directly onto the screen in many layers of colours and densities. By layering multiple layers of dyes onto the screen I was able to create depth and tone within the paintings, as well as blending the colours together creating inky textures and shades.

  • Screen Printed Florals
    Screen Printed FloralsDuring my second year at university I focused my practice on screen printing and developing dischargeable acid pastes to print elaborate and expressive botanical forms. Starting with an intensive 3 weeks of drawing I developed my style of drawing sunflowers and seed pods with stick and Indian inks, as well as using graphite, pencils and black fine liners. Within the print room I experimented and developed acid dye paste recipes to hand dye and screen print silk fabric samples. The final outcome
