A colourful and metamorphic expression that sprouted and flourished from a theoretical seed.

The stimulus: what relevance may sound have with printed textiles? By analysing information (both audio and visual) in contemporary art, textile design/art, product design, media, architecture, fashion and photography, and discrete pockets of science, I developed a personal audio-visual understanding. I abstracted sound as: rhythm, composition and movement of high tones, medium and low tones- considering sound as movement- reminiscent of heat and light vibrations. All the while using techniques and concoctions in the print room and dye lab where I could liberally express these considerations onto fabric. Colour, pattern, texture, mark-making, drawing/painting and comparison of scales and composition- these are in fact the natural language of printed textiles.
