Emily’s latest project, City Block, was inspired by Brutalist architecture of Southampton and London clashing with Modern architecture being built up around the concrete structures. Through pencil drawings, painting and collage Emily created exciting imagery to be used in repeat and placement prints which then incorporate hand stitch for detail and pattern infill. She uses a bold colour palette, combined with strong geometrics creates an exciting body of interior fabrics. This project focuses on her skills in print and stitch creating a dynamic collection.
