I appreciate beautiful and innovative textile prints and it is so empowering to be able to create them myself and put them onto actual garments. I have learned how to create fabrics with hand painting, silk screen printing, and monoprinting. All of these methods are used in my collection.
My textile patterns are inspired by florals and geometric shapes. I filled my sketchbook with sketches, watercolors, photographs, and imagery manipulated in PhotoShop. I assembled a collection of garments to implement my ideas onto: blouse, two scarves, bag, t-shirt, and skirt. Finally, I got to work with my hands. This is when I feel the most free creatively - I let my hands dip into the paint, I let them slide over the silk screen, I let them touch the fabric.
I am proud of my collection and am looking forward to learning additional techniques to create custom fabrics. Let me know what you think of these garments! I appreciate your feedback!
