Every week I will post a new set of 5 prints based on a random word I choose.

Ok so apparently gamp is a british term for an umbrella, refering to Mrs. Gamp, a nurse in a Dickens novel. I'm thinking i'm gonna take a watery and sketchy approach to this word, so things like wet parchment and neutrals will be my main focus.
I'm a 5th year Fashion Design: Product Development major at the University of Cincinnati in the college of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. I love fashion design, but for the past couple of years I have started to focus more on textile and print design. I'm in a 5 year program at school which includes a year and a half of work experience they call Co-Op. Basically starting my sophomore year every other quarter I work for a company as an intern and then I go back to school for a quarter. Now that I've just finished my 5th co-op I've worked at 5 different companies with jobs that include product development, apparel design and textile design. Textile design is my favorite, so I have been on that track for the last year.
