Just a small preview of a repeat fabric design that I have recently screen-printed ready to be upholstered onto a very beautiful chair. I feel like this design is a step into a slightly more commercial realm for me, and I am really pleased with how the chair is taking shape – there will be more pictures to follow once it is finished!

The New Designers exhibition opens today at the Business Design Centre in Angel. Brimming with fresh, graduate talent, I am sure the will be more than plenty to see. I will be exhibiting my work alongside my peers at the Central St Martins Stand T52. Come and check it out.

Thanks to everyone that came along to the show. I have had some great feed-back and I think everyone agreed that the show as a whole was very exciting. These photographs show my final pieces as part of a concept visualisation. I think they really helped me to tie my entire project together and reinforce the ideas behind it.

With private viewings this week and public entry next week, Central St Martins is definitely buzzing at the moment. And this year marks a corner stone in the history of the college, as the last show in the infamous Charing Cross Road and Southampton Row buildings. With the move to Kings Cross imminent, I am sure this years graduates will be going out with a bang.

The textile design show is open to the public from Monday 20th June until Thursday 24th June. Open 12pm – 8pm Monday to Wednesday and 12pm to 6pm on the Thursday. Please do come and check it out, I can definitely assure you of exciting things.

I have been working on some images to put together into a larger repeat design to be printed digitally. I have always liked the combination of photographic and hand-drawn imagery; it creates a great tension. I think that perhaps using digital printing will make the sense of humour within my work more apparent and effective.

A different approach to research for my current project, creating small collaged box shrines in an assortment of containers. There is something quite addictive and satisfying about making these.

I feel like I want a drastic change in scale before I carry on with them. I’ve got hold of an old piano stool that I can work on the inside of. Or perhaps a different shape to work into other than boxes.

I took these photos as part of my research for my final project. They started off as a bit of a desperate attempt to create something. But I think they convey the sense of obsession and loss of reasoning that I was trying to capture well.
