Days spent at the seaside with my dogs are some of my most cherished memories. Sharing a flask of tea before heading to the sea. The different textures below my feet as we play fetch. The smell and sound of the Atlantic Ocean as my dogs run free. My pockets bursting full of shells and stones. How locations change drastically due to the weather. Shells scattered along the beach. Patterns created by the changing tides on the sand. Muted colour palettes. The dramatic and changeable views this country is famous for. All these moments bring me sheer happiness. Touched by the beauty of our landscape, my final collection translatesS these memories. Through items collected from the seaside and photography I translate pattern, texture and colour through drawing. Abstracting shapes, textures and marks, I use weave and dye techniques to create fabrics for soft furnishings. Using the subtle colours, textures and patterns found by the sea I bring the comfort of the seaside back into the home.
