Abbie Russell

I am a recent graduate with a BA (Hons) Textiles and Surface Design degree.  I am a surface designer and my specialist area is gift design, I could spend hours in a shop searching through cards, wraps and tags.

My work is all about colour, I feel colour is my strength.  I love using bright and vibrant colours in my work and I feel this is how I define myself and my work.  My colour palette tends to include oranges, yellows, blues, greens, purples and reds.  I have a quirky drawing style which I feel links in well with the colour schemes which I tend to use and adds a unique touch to my work.  As my colour palette is so bright and my drawing has a naïve touch to it they link well as the colours bring out the unusual characteristics of my drawings.
