Book Illustration

The bold blocks of flat colour successfully add depth and definition to the image. The selective colour use is also effective.

Tales of Antiquity

These are some of the latest pieces that I have been working on. I have been studying sculpture and stone work within Florence & Barcelona, collecting a body of experimental drawings and silhoutted shapes.

Vintage Tiles

I love the mis-match of vintage tiles above the marble sink. The photo was taken in the home of Sannu Annuka.

Pattern Power

I found this image in a recent copy of Elle Decoration: it is a snapshot from within the home of Baz Luhrman. It is a gorgeous collaboration of different patterns within an interior space.

Contemporary Wallpaper Design

Simon Heijdens, Deborah Bowness and Rachel Kelly

I'm currently writing my dissertation upon the crisis of status that wallpaper is experiencing within contemporary society. The innovation displayed by various artists & designers over the individual components of design has led to a reinvention of its traditional form and function. Personal exploration has resulted in divergent results, confusing its classification. Does it belong in the visual back/fore-ground? Does it function as an art object or mere decoration? Will the collaboration of different disciplines impact the role and opportunities for the Surface Pattern Designer? What does the future of the industry hold? These are all issues that I am hoping to unearth through my investigation.
