– ABOUT AURA DESIGNS –
Aura designs works on bringing the natural environment into your home and creating a collective of memories. Designs have been inspired by the places I have lived and visited. My love for these locations is shared by so many and the collection is a method of sharing their beauty and taking it home with you. My main focus is to use clean graphic elements to capture unique features of the area.
The range is handcrafted through a screen-printing process and every design is unique. Ranges include home furnishing, cushions, wall mounted fabrics and table linens. The collection works well in a contemporary interiors setting with its use of graphic clean shapes. The collection can be used anywhere in the home; living space, bedrooms and bathrooms.
I come from a background in graphic design, with a degree in Visual Communications from DIT and an Art Direction Masters from Nottingham Trent University.
I have worked in both In-house and agency environments for the last 6 years and wanted to get back to my creative passion. Textile design has been a way for me to focus on pattern and shape and use my graphic design skills to translate graphic elements into a physical collection. I enjoy physically creating designs and being off a computer. I think designs come to life when they are printed and become a physical piece that people can enjoy and use everyday.
Owner / Designer / Creative Director
A creative person who loves design, interiors and the seaside.
Nature plays a huge part of my designs and I enjoy making these come to life.
The design process starts from observation of the visual elements and the emotive experience. Translated into photography and then sketched into line and brush stroke elements to give a graphic and contemporary focus.
Line, colour and texture work together to create a one of a kind piece that captures an aura of the location. My range is made with hand selected, high quality material such as linens and heavy cottons. The fabric colours are selected speciﬁcally to suit each location and can mix and match together to both complement and contrast. The fabric texture adds beautiful details to the graphic designs.
