Screen Printing

Anyone who knows me at art school, will know that screen printing is not my forte. This was proven even more so with our repeat print project. I don’t lie when I tell you that this project made three girls cry, one including me. It just shows how difficult this project was for us. It…

Fashion Illustration

It’s taken me a long time to try and figure out how I wanted to write this blog post. The Black Lives Matter protests during this lockdown period has given me a new perspective on this project. Due to these protests, I have realised because racism exists, I have not been able to appreciate the…

Artist Books

Being at university has opened my brain up to know what artists books actually are. Once upon a time, I just thought that they were a book that exhibited artist’s work. Little did I know, that they were an art form in its own entirety. So, what is an artist book I hear you asking,…

Data and Pattern

This project was about finding new ways to collect data and how we can interpret it into new patterns. I thought this was a bit of a weird project at first, (when don’t I?), but it really does make a lot more sense as a nearly third year student. I found myself drawn particularly to…

Feature on Textiles Inc

It looks like I was not the only one who was been busy during quarantine. As a result of Covid-19, a lot of textile students were not able to go on their work experience placements during the summer holidays. I luckily was not affected as I am the year below, but many course mates in…

Feature in Waitrose Food Magazine!

Finally, it’s here! My drawing is featured in this month’s (November) Waitrose Food Magazine. It is the first time my work has been included in a published object, in this case a magazine, so it is very exciting for me! You can find the magazine in stores or you can even find it on the…

Sustainable Cards

I made these cards at the beginning of the lockdown period. I had been home for a week and already was missing my friends so I decided to make some cards. I had these felt squares from a previous project in 2015. I also had leftover felt from my Arthur’s Seat project. I kept all…

My 100th Post

It has three years since I started this blog. As my brother reminded me, it was originally a gift from him, and a good one it has been too! As the years have gone on, I have realised that this blog is not only a digital sketchbook for me but in fact a device to…

Side 1 Designs

While these nights now draw in, I have been designing designs for a beautiful brand. The brief was to make a twill scarf for Strathberry, so this is just one side of it. This is meant to the be the main side, but who is there to say which side is which. I am loving…

Side 2 Designs

The side 2 designs are a little more tame and have more incorporation of the brand in it. From studying other brands, I have made designs that could work whatever the design on the other side. Majority of the designs are in black and white, but can also lend themselves to some colour too which…

The Stamps of Edinburgh

During this Strathberry project, I made up some stamps of places in Edinburgh that truly mean something to me. They are a mixture of line drawings and acrylic paint colour blocks. I think it has made something quite characterful but I am still unsure about the line work. Any thoughts?

West End Details

If you read my previous posts, you would know that one of the areas that I am looking at for my scarf project is the West End. The West End hosts so many beautiful buildings as well as little boutique shops, as well as the Strathberry store. The area is full of history, of which,…
