Intense colours, explicit patterns and bulky textures help me express my appreciation for nature as a textile designer. I emphasise natures beauty by focusing on the bright colours that can be found within leaves and flowers. My initial ideas derive from experimentation through collages and a series of abstract paintings which help me to explore and discover colour. I then develop my colour palette by using a variety of different colourways within my abstract paintings, inspiring me to use bright colours within my digital embroidery collections. I further develop my paintings and collages by experimenting with scale and composition digitally. This allows me to create a collection of new designs that can be used on the digital embroidery machine. Afterwards, I incorporate slower hand embroidery techniques such as beading, adding intricacy and detail, and resulting in contemporary hybrid embroidery designs.
