Pattern Development

 

Beginning with a screen print of a tiger moth, I developed the graphic patterns in the wings to a repeatable tile. I then experimented printing on various textiles to develop the final pattern. Serendipitously, my studio mate needed a graphic print to cover a furniture piece she was working on.

Process

Combining hand sketching and painting with Illustrator and Photoshop, I experimented with scale, negative space, density and opacity.
