‘Urban Realignment’ captures what happens when the rural landscape and urban structures meet. The collection consists of both hand and digitally printed textiles that are designed for upholstery, window treatments and surfaces within interiors.
It juxtaposes the softness of the rural landscape with the harsh silhouette of the industrial structures of the city. It captures these elements through mixed media with a focus on creating textiles that convey textural and illustrative elements.
My collection is influenced by mid-Twentieth Century designers like Lucienne Day and John Piper. I also explored working with a variety of natural materials, both hard and soft, that were durable and could last a long time. This led me to designing wall tiles by laser-cutting into slate and fabrics such as cotton velvet, linen and wool for my printed textiles.
