Finch and Foxglove Collective

Earlier in the year I have the pleasure of exhibiting my surface pattern work at Print Source, New York as an artist in residence post with Finch and Foxglove. It was not only great fun but it gave my work a global platform to present my work to a global audience.

I am very excited to be part of the group and now participating on an ongoing basis to their website, newsletters and social media post. If you would like to see more work from this talented group of women please hop over to the website and sign up with your email address to receive news and updates from Finch & Foxglove. You won't be disappointed.

The original idea behind my concept for the design Global Tribe Bedroom Collection was based on the fact that I am now part of a Global Textile Tribe showing at International shows such as Premiere Vision, Paris, Heimtextil, Germany and PrintSource, New York. I am very much looking forward to being part of the international textile community in this way and I am delighted to be represented by such great agency which is Nerida Hansen, Print and Textiles based in Australia.

My Design Directions for Premiere Vision, Paris Sep 2016

I am heading to Paris again in September as a member of the Collect Scotland design squad. My print preparation is well underway and I have been working extremely hard on an exciting trend lead collection for Spring Summer 2017.

Its always so difficult to decide on a print direction to design too but I was recently inspired by a drawing trip to The Royal Botanical Gardens, Edinburgh which lead to me creating a range of new botanical & vintage floral design prints which have since been produced by wallpaper manufacturer Eades Bespoke. Sneak peek below:

 

I have continued with this theme and have been developing exotic Botanical & Vintage Botanical Trend led prints for the fashion & homeware market. Look out for my Tropical Escape Palms & Vintage Botanical Blooms if you are visiting Premiere Vision, they are with the Collect Scotland stand from 13th Sept - 15th Sept 2016 Stand
