This design was inspired by early 19th century hand-painted Chinese wallpaper. Wallpaper, which had reached the height of fashion in 1700’s Britain, once symbolized luxury and elegance. But by the early 19th century, European-printed wallpaper was standard in working-class homes. This led to a demand for custom-made Chinese wallpaper that was hand-painted for wealthier households.
My fabric designs are created from digital photography and are drawn from nature, architectural and antiquities details, textures, patinas, and found objects.
