My collection includes a series of quirky, conversational prints which have been inspired by Irish Fairy tales, creating patterns with illustrations that I have drawn. Initial drawings are a key element in my design work, which I then develop and enhance digitally using Photoshop and Illustrator. I enjoy using a range of media, including collage, paint, pastels, and fine pen. My work has been created for lifestyle application, mainly with childrens fashion or interiors in mind. An element of Nostalgia is apparent in my work, connecting to those who are familiar with the stories from their own experience, this makes the collection more appealing to adults as well as children. Culture and language are also relevant, focusing on the original Irish stories and finding out more about the places they are set. I keep my work fun and playful by using bright colours and fine textures alongside my personal drawing style, which is quite childlike in itself.
