Collection portfolio, created for my BEHANCE profile, exhibiting the development and final outcome of the interior collection Pangaea.
PANGAEA – A supercontinent that existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic age. It began to break apart about 175 million years ago.
For this collection I looked back in time at plants from this era, ones that still exist and some now extinct. Pulling this together with the upcoming trends of bringing the outdoors in, overgrowth, drawing in rich deep tones of indigo.

OLD MASTERS

Interior collection developed from the idea of tradition, old masters paintings and English florals. Using quirky details such as hands inspired by the famous painting ‘Ophelia’ by Sir John Everett Millais, the collection displays the strong presence of my love of hand drawing techniques such as hatching and stippling. Completed with a 3 metre, 3 colour, silk screen printed fabric length using pearl and pigment binders for colouring.
