I've been playing around with natural fabric dyes and these are some of the georgous results. The 1st purple image comes from a blueberry dye and the lovely sunny yellow in the lower left of the 2nd image comes from a very fragrant orange and cinnamon tea.
I'm loving these colourful, juicy splatts! I think they will look amazing on gift wrap or fun linen for a childrens birthday party! Looking forward to having this range printed.
Very excited about tomorrows Dreamer's Market. These are the latest designs that I've been working on. Original patterns and surface design by me on a range of products. I'm really pleased with how the works have come together and a big thank you to my social media assistant Bella who has been updating my sites for me. xx
I'm loving every minute of this process. These are the templates that I've designed for my Gift Wrap. I'm feeling like everything is sliding into place with my work at the moment. I am loving creating new patterns and have drawn great inspiration from an artist and designer in the US, Jessica Swift. Jessica creates the most wonderful surface pattern and designs and is extremely generous in sharing her wisdom and the steps in her creative journey through her blog posts and e-book, Jump, Trust, Repeat.
I purchased the e-book the other day and I'm not finished reading it yet but it is a gem! I would recommend it to anyone on a creative journey, it's uplifting, honest, generous and filled with practical advice.
Okay it's been a while! I feel like I've been a hermit for a while as I've worked on getting some work together. I bought myself a Wacom tablet for Christmas and have been steadily working away and playing with the digital process. There are some early plays with this early in the blog. The part of this process that has been exciting me the most is how this process will work with surface design.
I've got some work together and I'm really pleased with the results. Off to market on Saturday @ the Dreamer's Market to see how the work is received. Fingers crossed all goes well. I'll post up some better quality images tomorrow, I was just so happy with the results I couldn't wait to get this out there!
Artist, designer and educator, inspired by light, colour and the world around me.
