This collection of prints is inspired by Toile de Jouy a traditional style of print rich in history with finely detailed designs of figures, buildings or flowers usually monochromatic. Inspired by the elegant yet casual style I have created 6 universal prints that are aimed towards interiors but could be used for fashion or accessories.
My work is minimalistic and clean I use my sketches combined with photography to contrast traditional with modern. The inspiration for the toile is my hometown in Donegal, I use aspects of my small town Raphoe to create a storylike pattern. Adding more current vivid colours will be considered along with sticking to the tradition of using different shades of blue. CAD and digital print are a big part of this collection with a combination of screen-printing.
