UNIVERSITY:

Textile Design BA, Nottingham Trent University

TITLE OF WORK:

NOVUS

DESCRIPTION OF WORK:

An artistic expression of colour and texture, the Novus collection captures the subtle, diaphanous movement of nature in a palette of fresh, uplifting and contemporary tones. Reimagining hazy landscapes, as delicate brush strokes capture the fluid movement of wild untamed grass and summer meadows, it evokes a serene setting to reawaken our intimate connection with nature.

The meaning behind the word ‘reawaken’ is something to consider as we emerge from this phase.
