I am a 2nd year Fashion student, studying at John Moores University. The
inspiration for the first two paintings is the natural and manmade world.
I used a variety of media to create the paintings, including oil pastel,
gauche, and ink, and a put them together using collage. I tried to incorporate
the idea of natural and manmade together, by using flowing, free lines
to represent natural, and straight, strong, dark lines to represent manmade.
The second set of paintings, are fashion illustrations, which wre experiments
of using texture, to achieve the look of a fabric. I did this by using
layers of masking tape, pieces of netting and gauche paint. The
final set of paintings are fashion illustrations of design ides for garments,
i took the inspiration for the shape and colour from food.
