I am a printed textile designer. My final collection 'Plant Perfect', is inspired by my house plants and the Botanical Gardens Belfast. I start my research process by drawing plants first-hand and photographing areas of interest to follow with more initial drawings, both physical and digital. This blend of physical and digital manipulation is a key part of my creative process. I import my sketches and drawings into Illustrator clean them up and then move them into photoshop for further manipulation. In order to achieve the outcomes I desire to their full potential, my collection will be completely digital. I worked with my designs in Photoshop and from there my collection started to really develop. Using many different digital processes, I have explored colour, texture and composition, and I created patterns from the abstracted plant and leaf shapes I had drawn with a refined colourway that I handpicked from my photography. Plant Perfect is just brimming with colour and my designs are fresh, graphic, fluid, lively, and intended for commercial or interior use.
