Quite a change from previous work it may seem when you look at these designs compared to those on my website. My previous work was created straight from fabric fragments and stitch, whereas these new ones have more of a complete process - from collaging and ideas in my sketchbook to interpretating and manipulating them in to designs to work on fabric. I feel happier with this process too, it feels more of a complete journey for me in the design process. Something I've been aiming for for a while now! For me it means my designs are more personal to me as well.
I like making them in to accessories so they can used - wearable/useable art as it were. Although I may have to make some as collages and mixed media pieces to just be purely looked at! I love the nature of abstract in these ideas - lines, marks, colours and textures as well as some more recognisable images.
I hope you like the fresh new ideas too! ;0
