It’s always a satisfying feeling to add a new design to your collection of works. This creation was inspired by the Banksia Integrifolia, commonly known as coast banksia and is found growing along the east coast of Australia. I have added a branch of Grevillea and a few much loved Australian Birds, such as the Blue Wren, Regent Honeyeater and the Scarlet Honeyeater, these can be found scattered amongst the Banksia leaves. The design features details that are all hand-drawn in graphite pencil and then digitally coloured in Photoshop, with the spray painted background adding a contemporary touch. It’s available printed as a wallpaper, commercial upholstery fabric and on crisp Linen. You can order samples here.

Wallpaper and textile design always starts with an idea/inspiration or a clients idea. All my designs are hand drawn in graphite or pen. The design process begins with rough sketching and continues with a number of steps until the design is complete. Here is an outline of just some of the steps involved in creating the design. Research…draw…scan into computer…put into a repeat…tidy artwork in computer…decide on colours…print art work…expose screens or digital file ready..sample /strike – off..colour tweaking.
