Roisin Ballinger (L5)BA (Hons) Textile Design
My love of travel, art-history, food and nature drive and direct my inspiration. I work primarily with surface print and hand stitch, exploring colour and texture using unconventional drawing and mark-making tools that I make myself.
Sustainability is very important to my practice, and I am exploring the use of natural earth and mineral pigments as a medium for dyeing and printing combined with repurposing and reusing fabric waste.
These images are a selection of works from my second year and represent my use of colour and composition.
