IWD: Jayne Hemmins
Jayne specialised in printed textiles at University. Her first commission was a children’s interiors collection for Laura Ashley and from there she has gone on to sell work to companies across Europe, the USA, Japan and Australia across all areas of surface design for interiors, gift, table top and fashion.
Jayne works across print and embroidery to produce designs in repeat as well as placement designs, murals and illustration. Jayne has excellent knowledge of a wide range of techniques and processes across printed textiles and hand and machine embroidery.
Currently, screen printing, embroidery and printmaking are Jayne’s main area of focus within her practice along with a mixed media approach to image generation. Jayne’s Scholarly Activity traverses creative practice, pedagogy, anthropology and personal authenticity.
Jayne aims to provoke thought and action as well as asking questions of the creative process and personal barriers, resists and rituals around it. She loves working with her students to develop their design, technical, creative thinking and critical analysis skills and helping them to achieve their potential and get the career of their dreams after graduation.
