‘Rustic Fauna’ is a high-end interiors collection influenced by my experiences and observations from many parts of the world. My current designs of birds and botanicals offer an insight into the flora and fauna where I now live, and places I have travelled to, decorated with the neutral pastel shades of Africa that surrounded my early years.
This collection will invite nature into your home by displaying the birds within botanical plants and other woodland attributes. The collection combines textural qualities with detailed drawing and painting styles, producing full-content designs and co-ordinate prints through traditional screen printing and digital methods, on a range of fabrics and wallpapers. The focus on detail is created by developing pieces through graphite rubbings and plaster casting, allowing the viewer to observe the fine detail, which is often overlooked in the natural world. Throughout this year I have developed a strong understanding of colour, using this within my designs to develop high-quality drawings and paintings, translating into sophisticated prints. Having a strong interest in market research, looking at appropriate trends for fabric, wallpapers and interior spaces, I would like to pursue a career in print design for interiors.
