Romilly studied History of Art and Material Studies at University College London and is now studying Textiles at Camberwell, CCW. Playful and tactile, her work reflects a fascination for intricate natural forms, as well as a preoccupation with materials, their properties and processes. Romilly uses everyday materials such as newspaper and industrial packaging to create prints, sculptures and installations. For example, in her nature prints she uses Tetra Pak and left-over computer ink. This process of imprinting an image of natural forms using waste materials reflects the very real impact waste is having on the natural world.
I am interested in the integrity of materials and am concerned with the impact that some artists’ materials and processes have on the environment. I like to explore alternatives and allow materials to assert their agency through the making process
