It all started with a 'mark making' exercise in art class. Using a painting spatula and a lino cutting tool I drew what I believed best represented my leaves.

This pattern led to a paper cutting exercise where I cut the pattern out, using the negative spaces in the piece on the left to produce shadow work. I then reused the cut out pieces to produce the opposite effect on the right.

This pattern was then used as the beading design on my dress
And eventually led to the pattern for a piece of stitched jewellery... which is now my new obsession;)
