As a designer I have to be very versatile so that I can respond to different types of design briefs.
This Travel collection of ‘Travel Prints’ have been developed through my eclectic mix of imagery drawn in my sketchbooks. I love nature and being outdoors together with a keen interest in history. I have chosen initially places that are in Hampshire and Isle of Wight, this collection will continue grow and the area will widen to include other counties and countries. I have so many ideas of places that I would like to depict in this distinct style.
The original artwork is a collage of images, environments, buildings, animals, birds, flowers and my own hand drawn maps of places that I love and know well. I use a variety of papers and media to develop the artwork and use the local newspaper for the background to some of the imagery and also for some of the words.
I have been influenced by collage artists and by Kurt Schwitters in particular
