RMIT Bachelor of Textiles (Design)

My work is about bringing joy and happiness to spaces through playful colours and bold textures. The maximalist style is an extension of my outgoing personality. The concept behind ReColour emerged in the midst of the global pandemic and living a prolonged lockdown state-wide. On the most difficult days, I found myself looking at old photos, remembering and longing for moments when I was immensely happy. Using these photos as the starting point of my project, I constructed collages. Looking to Italian Futurism as my reference for colour and form. Abstractions from these collages have been realised as hand-tufted pieces for home decor.
