Welcome to my very first blog post!!
I thought to introduce myself I would just say a few things… so here goes!
As you may have deducted, my name is Kiyana. I’m newly 21 years old (sheesh) and I study Textile Design at Nottingham Trent University. Which, is currently Times Modern University of the year (2018). My speciality is Print Design, specifically interiors and decor… which, doesn’t sound very textiley… but I promise, it is.
For a little while now I wanted somewhere that I could post and write things I do and feelings I have about my creative world. But it wasn’t until I spoke to a lovely girl in the year above me, who is a graduate, that I decided to do anything about that… “Promise me you’ll make a blog!” she shouted to me over the music at 2am on a Saturday, standing there with a drink in her hand, no more than 4 ft from the bar in our local students union club. Well, Dee, if you’re out there, I did!
