Bright colours and patterns have always been something that I find myself drawn to in the work of other artists an d using them to tell a story has been a skill that I have had a hard time developing. I find that the process of making colourful tiles and turning them into a pattern very therapeutic. Particularly when the patterns themselves remind me of environments where I felt safe as a child, such as my grandparents houses as well as my childhood home. This feeling of safety is something I hope to communicate in my work.
Below is a geometric pattern I made using sugar paper, glue and photoshop made to resemble wallpaper in my grandmothers house.
