Amelia Rose Hunt Printed Textiles Designer:
As a designer I find inspiration everywhere, but nature has always provided me with my best ideas and designs. My work is a playful and contemporary take on a traditional English Countryside style. I love to experiment with colour in my work; I do this by altering the colour of the motifs I draw. My work often includes animal and floral motifs painted in watercolour and pencil which means I use digital software to create my most effective prints. As a printed textiles designer I also enjoy using hand printed techniques such as screen printing and block printing, but I have found that digital print allows me to create more complex designs and produce less waste. I want my prints to place emphasis on the importance of nature and make people pay more attention to the nature that surrounds them every day.
