Alice Howard-Graham is a Printed Textile Designer-Maker based between East Sussex and Croydon. Alice studied on the BA (Hons) Textile Design degree at UCA Farnham from 2009-2012, later going on to the Royal College of Art where she completed a Masters in Textiles in 2016.
With over 8 years experience of working as a Freelance Print Designer for both fashion and interior brands in London – Alice now divides her time between freelance clients and producing personal work as a Textile Artist. She has also been a Visiting Lecturer on the Textiles course at UCA Farnham since 2017. Alice holds a rich knowledge of digital & screen-printing techniques, colour and dye processes, strong experience in Adobe software and a keen eye for textile innovation and colour researching.
Alice’s work has a distinctly graphic feel. Often drawing on her photography for inspiration, she works in an abstract way – masking off areas, extracting shapes and interesting compositions from her photographs – whilst juxtaposing with bold areas of solid colour. Using different types of layering processes enables her to create sophisticated patterns and marks – making every screen print completely unique. From dye techniques, open-mesh printing, to methods of extracting the printed dyes from the cloth, she has an experimental and yet highly perfected method of designing.
