COLOUR AND TEXTURE IN NATURECOLOUR AND TEXTURE IN NATUREAs you can see my inspiration for my designs comes primarily from the colours and textures in nature.
TREES in relation to their bark, leaves, decay, fruits and fungi that grow on them.
STONE WALLS AND RUST for colours and textures.
CHANGING SEASONS , the colours of spring, summer, autumn and winter.
CHANGING LIFE, BIRTH TO DEATH CYCLE of insects and plants including decay.
THE SKIES in relation to the times of day and weather.
FLOWERS AND GARDENS for colour and texture.
CHANGING SEASHORE tides,sand, rocks, elections, and ripples.
UNDERWATER LIFE coral, shells,fish,rocks,and minerals.
I keep a sketchbook/ sample book of the ideas for dyeing colour and stitch patterns and textures. Each design of garment or textile is unique.
