A Collection of Wallpapers

Pattern making and in particular wallpaper design has been a main focus in my lino work for some time now, but only recently have i began to bring conceptual narratives into my designs. The 'Fish in bags' piece and the 'Shooting birds' piece, at first glance a fun and bold graphic, is a metaphor for the destructive and selfish behaviour humans wield over our natural world, devastating the lives of creatures for instant, selfish gratification. 

 

My work has become about turning wallpaper into something more than just wallpaper. It surrounds us as an ever present form of art and design, so to place images of issues that we should be questioning and thinking about in such a context is a way of bringing them to our attention, but at the same time creating a beautiful image; a dichotomy.
