Amanda van der Walt is a graphic designer and illustrator with a passion for textile design. She is embarking on a career designing patterns and creating textiles that are different and fresh. In all of her designs, she tries to be true to where she comes from and who she is as a South African.
Van der Walt’s pattern series, Dorp, features eight designs inspired by different areas of Potchefstroom, where she is currently studying at North West University. She has applied these pattern designs to chairs, cushions, lampshades and wallpaper, as well as paper mache bowls.
