The language of Flower prints were inspired by love, Victorian history, with a 60s and 70s colourful twist The language of flowers was developed into popular art by the Victorians in Great Britain, who expressed meaning in the colour and arrangement of the flowers as well as the choice of species This was a source of great amusement and relief to many in the days when codes of courtship were rigid, their reticence almost contrived.
A set of Screen-print designs with a mix of different flowers, including the Rose, the Forget-Me-Not, and the Passion Flower The prints are for a collection of fashion garments and accessories

Production Technology
The designs, once drafted in pen and ink, are migrated to the stencil format. Once the multiple layers of the design are fully templated, their forms are transferred individually to silk screen panels by a Photo-sensitive emulsion process. Drawing ink over the reverse of the design by “flood stroke” the designs are built up layer by layer. We repeat this process until all the designs are positioned and coloured to satisfaction. Once quality controlled, the designs are then scanned, scaled, edited and repeated into several patterns and arrangements with creative software.
