studio work

This is some of my current work which i have just finished based on my project of british birds and florals. I used Mattise inspired colours for the brights and used a naive drawing style by drawing everything freehand with out use of pencil. I also took the idea into monochrome using black, white and greys with a hint of colour. All these designs were made for interiors and aimed at the current domestic market. These designs have just been entered into the bradford textile society competition.

love Claire Coles! and really inspired by her delicate drawing and subtle colour. The work just flows up the walls as if it is part of it.

colour splash!

love the colour of these designs by design bark. love the way the shapes form into bird shapes and the graphic style merged with delicate line bird drawings.

Mattise inspired designs

These are some of my designs i tried to recreate the bright colours of Mattise. I had the theme of birds running through my work. These were designed for interiors which were for the domestic market.

These are some of my drawings and paintings which help me to develop and expand my ideas further. I wanted to show the difference between colour and black and white.
