Ruby Stern's Portfolio


I am a Textile Print and Surface Designer recently graduated with a 2:1 from BA/Hons Textiles at Edinburgh College of Art. 

 I work in a collage of photography and drawing, combining digital and manual processes to create multi-layered compositions. Tactility and texture are achieved through explorative material play, and are combined with a sophisticated application of colour and pattern.
