This sequence of work (primarily Kate's A Level Art sketchbook pages) shows experimentation with media and the exploration of compositional ideas. Artist influences are chosen cleverly: seamlessly integrating with her own aesthetic.
Some students lose enthusiasm towards the end of their project; Halima’s AS Level Textiles project becomes even more vibrant and comprehensive as she nears her final piece. Gaining inspiration from a range of relevant artists and designers, she continues to produce fresh, innovative pieces that integrate cohesively with her body of work.
These sketchbook pages are the unequivocal result of effort, passion and enthusiasm. Although 'decoration' is usually unnecessary within a textile or fashion design sketchbook, in this case, the background patterning demonstrates a complete understanding of the aesthetic; a strong personal response to the colours, shapes, textures, lines and forms of the work studied.
