Experimenting with Geometrics

I've always been a lover of geometric style artwork, and have managed to incorporate into a lot of my work over the years. This love of shapes and geometry came about whilst studying for my Textiles degree at University, we were encouraged to experiment a lot and geometric designs were my outcomes for the most part.

I decided to have a go with geometrics again, and while playing around with inks, I came up with some patterns, which I then digitised using Photoshop and created designs ready to cut and create with.

The first pattern painted with black ink

I have also been experimenting with paper cut text and quotes, look out for next weeks blog post for photos of those!

Thanks for reading.
