hanging up for assessment

As I had just finished hanging up kate took some pictures of my work! There is still clutter on the floor! Was not easy hanging laser cut 2 metre paper samples from the ceiling without wripping them but thankfully nothing came apart!

Looking forward to keeping my upholstered stool after the show. The degree show is on at Quay House, Quay Street, Spinningfield, Manchester from 16th -20th June (

I still have a long way to go with these complex patterns but I am being to see contemporary prints in the ones I am producing particularly in my choice of colours for them. I have picked out a few of my favourites from my portfolio:
