MEET THE MAKER...
Seonaidh Murphy is a Perth based Artist, Illustrator, Designer and also the owner of Big Bite Creations.
"I completed a BA (Art) specialising in Sculpture/Textiles and Illustration at Curtin University in 2006. I then went on to study an Advanced Diploma in Fashion and Textile Design at Central Institute of Technology in 2010. As a fashion graduate I was awarded the Banshu Hyogo Scholarship and travelled to Japan to develop woven textiles with the internationally renowned Banshu fabric manufacturers, one of which was picked up by Versace.
I have worked with local designers such as Garth Cook, Chrissie Catling (S2) and Kristy Lawrence (Flannel) and also designed and produced for events such as Perth Fashion Festival, Hit the Roof, Aperitif and Manipulate. I have been involved with local productions such as, Shiver, as a costume designer. I have also worked at Second Skin patternmaking and producing pressure garments for the medical industry.
I have worked in the bridal industry as an illustrator, designer and buyer. I have also worked with a commercial home wares business (specializing in commercial Artwork) which furthered my insight and knowledge of manufacturing internationally.
I am currently working as a lecturer in the Fashion and Textile School at Central Institute of Technology. I am also working as a freelancer selling and licensing my own artwork, designs, textiles and other products under my own brand, Big Bite Creations. I aim to bridge the gap between art and design spheres and everyday people by by incorporating art into, practical, functional and affordable designs and objects that also align to a sustainable, environmentally friendly and locally made ethos."
