About Lily Walker :
Lily is passionate about colour and believes it to be a vital part of our everyday lives. She is always on the lookout for exciting colour palletes and combinations everywhere she goes. Lily is inspired by nature and so, her final designs always evolve from hand drawn illustrations and painting from life, using a mixture of gouache and acrylic paint. Various design options are then explored and developed using photoshop, allowing Lily to experiment with different colour combinations and cropping tools to generate abstract and energetic designs, mostly to be printed digitally.
During Lily's final second year project she moved from digital to screen printing and loved the organic variations of texture and colour that this technique could achieve. Lily enjoys the hands-on approach and likes how each print can be unique and subtly different.
Inspirational Designers: Tom Abbiss Smith, Atelier Bingo & Matisse.
Favourite textile technique: Digital & screen-printing.
Dream job: I would love to have a shared studio working as a freelance artist, creating and selling my patterns to clients and collaborating with other artists in the industry.
