Quite excited about a trip to Manchester on Sunday for a bit of research. I plan to visit the Whitworth Art Gallery to look at their fantastic collection of textiles, then on to the Museum of Science and Industry to the textiles gallery to find out all about the process of producing textiles... I've got textiles on the brain!

As well as creating designs on the computer I have also got my pencils out and worked on a few hand-drawn origami paper designs. This design was drawn, scanned and then coloured digitally, there are lots of variations of colourways but I rather like this one.

I occasionally use origami paper in my collages and really love the surface pattern styles the Japanese create. This year I've started working on my very own repeat surface patterns and of course they had to include my feathered friends somehow.
This is my very first design, watch this space for more!

It's always a nice surprise to discover something new about the work you make and thanks to a kind email about my Hebden Ravens card, I have discovered quite a lot.
