This photograph shows my Final Major Project that was put up in an exhibition in Summer 2009 at Park Street college, where I attended for two years studying ND Textiles.
My theme for the project was trees, and I produced a length of wallpaper with 3 canvases. The pattern for these interior pieces was taken and stylized from a drawing that I did of some tree bark. I screen printed the wallpaper by hand as well as the two canvases which use the same pattern, and used a digital print technique to produce the other canvas, using an image I had taken myself. I then worked into the two patterned canvases with both hand and machine embroidery, and cutwork to recreate the texture of the bark the pattern originally came from.
I'm very happy and proud of this work and doing this project really helped me discover my passion for surface pattern.
