This is me

My name is Jessica Kirkpatrick and I am based in the North West, UK. I have just finished my final year studying textile design at the University of Central Lancashire. I work mostly in detailed paintings and drawings, but also love experimenting with different styles to create more unusual prints. Throughout my time at university I have worked on both art pieces and projects centered around print. For example, completing projects that involved creating an entire gift wrap range, to exploring the beaches of my hometown to produce a textural project with a woven outcome. My final collection featured fabrics and wallpaper designs catered for interiors, centered around endangered species.
