Anna Simon

My name is Anna Simon, I am currently enrolled in  Year 2 Textiles at ECA but previously studied an art and design foundation at Newcastle College. I was attracted to textiles due to the freedom to use bright colours, expressive lines and mixed media for prints.

My inspirational Textiles is Ashleigh Jessup due to her fearless use of colour and layering of fabric manipulation.

I also use Mark Rothko’s colour fields and abstract expressionism as inspiration due to my fascination with colour and my fine art background.




Working from home work-wear confession is a hoodie and pyjamas- my hair will never be done.


My tactile fear sensation is sticky surfaces- revolting.

My desk is in student halls – no  paint stains yet!

    Anna this is a lovely first post and your Ashleigh Jessup image is perfect for the current project, so inspirational. The combination of print with the applied pleating and fringing holds so much potential. Arts thread is such a wonderful resource for upcoming young designers. Look forward to your personal bog now too. Will we see the ongoing state of the desk as your semester progresses?????
