Thalassic Botanica,.

Thalassic is a word that is related to the sea and Botanica is a play on botanic which is related to the life of plants in this case, the plants of the sea.

Living by the sea, I have always been indulged with luscious beaches and aquatic life. When I was asked what ‘I wanted to be when I grow up’ I was torn between two careers: 1) Being a Marine Biologist OR

2)The  Textile industry as an Interior designer.

Deciding between two very different fields, I followed my aspirations and went for the creative route I have always loved and thrived in.

This project is the time for me to rediscover my love for marine biology and combine it with my chosen career path in textiles.

Focusing on coral reefs the collection I’m looking closely at the textures, shapes and colourings found on varieties of coral, seaweed and species that create the architectural colonies of the ocean.

I’m incorporating the lives that exist and thrive among coral reefs and creating innovative, busy digital prints for a quirky, colourful interior setting.
