I’ve been encouraged by cameo curio to make marks – you might ask why ????? when you’ve just finished a full on second year in textile design at DJCAD but the things is I have to create, not just when I’m given a brief but all the time – its like eating and breathing – I simply love to create and have to create.
So with a new sketchbook to hand my month starts by capturing inspiration, this is the way I always begin a project and to start with Im going to capture natures marks, the marks left by the weather, creatures, insects, man and then we’ll see where it all develops.
So on May 1st on a little day trip with Jim I decided to take photographs – we hadn’t travelled far when I had to stop the car and capture the following little snaps, it was the colour and patterns that caught my eye as we were driving along and I loved the acid green on the sand stone.
