Swade - Illustrative Fashion & Homeware

An Artist Through and Through... I have always had a passion for art and design. When I was very young I had very severe dyspraxia, so I found it hard to express myself. Art was a great way for me to express what I was feeling or wanted to say when the words would not come to me. ā€˜A picture is worth a thousand words.ā€™ Nature definitely inspires me the most within my work. I love all the different shapes, textures, creatures, sounds and colours within it. Mountains and forests are especially a big inspiration as I have always felt more at home in the countryside away from the towns and cities. My process is usually to start out with some quick sketches of ideas. Then I add more detailing and other aspects in pen or paint. Once thats done I experiment with a lot of colour schemes for each piece digitally, till I find something that feels just right. Texture is also important to me as I find it adds that little something that brings everything together at the end.
