Work

Below are some images of my current work and also some images from the CCAD Textiles Facebook page from Paris.
Here I used DS Acid dyes on Watercolour paper to create some cards from. 

I used one of my cut lino's to print with bleech onto one of the dyed pieces of paper.

Repeat pattern for Gift

I have been creating some patterns for my gift project and thought I would share some of my work with you.
I have used one of my images from my trip to Paris to create some designs- which I really like! I would love to hear some opinions about them!

Indigo Trade Show

Today I was working on the CCAD stand at Indigo Premier Vision. I had an amazing day! I still can't believe how big the Premier Vision is!
I really enjoyed speaking to people from the industry and trying to sell work.
I also visited the Tom Cody stand, which is who I completed my work experience with last year. It was great to see them again!



Bonjour!

Bonjour from Paris!! I arrived in Paris this morning to work on the Indigo Trade Show tomorrow, so today had a very full day exploring Paris- and I am exhausted!!
We explored the Arc De Triumph, The Champs Élysées, The Musée de l'Orangerie, saw Paris from the big wheel, had a wander round Notre-Dame and then back to the Eiffel Tower. Below are some images from my first day in Paris.

We also found a gorgeous little flower shop which was just full of amazing flowers!

I will attach some links to the gallery we visited and also try and find a link to the flower shop. I will also update you on my day on the trade show tomorrow!

Freya Cumming

Today I visited the Biscuit Factory Gallery in Newcastle and found my new favourite print artist- Freya Cumming.
I absolutely love her prints, and find them very inspirational to my work. I am currently working on a gift project for Hallmark and am focusing my drawings on hand printing techniques such as Lino-printing, Mono-printing and will hopefully get a chance to do some screen-printing.
Below are some images of Freya's work that can be found on her website and blog.
