An abstract, highly textured image printed with four bands of colour from top to bottom; blue, pink, purple and black. A square tile pattern is present across the pink and purple areas and the blue and black areas have a woven screen like pattern. There is a strip of frayed plain-woven blue fabric texture laid horizontally at the upper edge of the black area. Above that, sits a blue 'figure' with a heart and cirular purple 'head'. A small patch of blue sits on the bottom edge of the pink area at the centre of the image. Above that is a darker pink abstract shape with an orange heart at the centre. There are small areas of orange, purple and yellow in the blue at the top. The image has a rough yellow line around the border.
