I’m an aspiring textile designer and illustrator
Atrophy is the fabric collection I designed and made for my exhibition project to complete my Bachelor of Design(Graphic Design) at AUT last year.
I’ve always been obsessed with pattern and print, but I realised that as an area of design – textile design remains fairly tame in it’s choice of subject matter. So, I wanted to experiment with themes of death and violence (some more discreetly than others) and see what sort of outcomes arose.
The fabrics I design are digitally printed interior textiles of large scale designs. However, In 2010, I hope to be able to foray in to hand printing (to include wallpaper), as well as increase the range of designs, palettes, upholstered furniture etc.
I see this as only the beginning ( I hope) of something much bigger.
