My textiles are produced by starting off with an original image that I have either hand-drawn or perhaps screen-printed. I then play with my work digitally to produce a richer image or pattern. This involves experimentation using layering techniques and the combining of different colours. It is very exciting to see the result digitally printed on to linen, cotton or silk. I enjoy making my fabric really unique by hand -painting into it with water-based paint if it is destined for an item such as a lampshade.
