Tia is a textile artist.

Tia’s practice is inspired by the imagery and textures of the natural world. Producing abstract textile pieces, Tia uses screen-printing and embroidery to create different surfaces. Beginning her working process with mark-making, mood boards and mind maps, her work is inspired by personal stories of connections to nature, informing the visual identity created for each piece. Tia’s work explores the visual and textural depth that can be achieved through textile design processes, and used for printed fabrics and embroidered pieces for the fashion market.
