Traveling on my bike, up into the misty moorland in the early hours of the day. Sketchbook in my backpack, pencils and cutting tools crammed in with puncture repair kits and energy bars. This is how my design process begins. Sometimes a sketch just can not sum up a mood as well as a pattern or colour, and so a series or patterns and photo splice work has slowly developed.
My dark, mood-filled, Cornfield design or my blue, fresh and sharp, porthole design are all a product of play and print.
My Cloud Gorse and crystal design all emerged after a mirror splicing and photography experiment, and the characters of the trees, still pools, and rock formations really shine through this pattern and print range.
