Although I have been inspired by Nature all my life and it was the theme for my degree show, these scarfs are my latest creative project. It’s amazing how when you are in a creative whirl and I have been due to ‘lockdown’ one idea just natural turns into another! The designs for my scarfs are from my original prints, hence they are ‘art scarves. Last year I tried out some of these designs as cushions and thought they looked great, and here I am now producing them as scarves. They show my love of Nature and colour. This colourful Valentine art scarf was inspired by the amazing leaves of an autumn vine. I have also used the bird from my print ‘follow your heart.‘ Always important to follow your heart!!
Although I mostly work as an artist and teacher I studied printed textile design at Bretton Hall College 1991-1994. Bretton Hall was an arts college set in beautiful Yorkshire Sculpture Park and an affiliate of Leeds University. I sold my fashion fabrics designs to New York, London and Tokyo before working for the French textile house Nobilis in Chelsea, London. To be honest I found the nature of freelancing too difficult when trying to pay the high rents and it seems like a different life. Now, all these years later, having my studio and extra time in it during ‘lockdown’ the old ‘Jo’ is reappearing, creativity is flowing and I hopefully can make a living from my creative products this time round.
As an artist/designer inspired by Nature I care for the environment. My bespoke art scarfs are made to order which means no unwanted wastage. They are printed in London and then posted back and hand sewn into luxurious scarves by me. If you are interested in sustainable unique hand designed products please take a look also at my bespoke art cushions. You can choose a sustainable option where they are printed onto organic cotton and have an up-cycled coordinated backing fabric. These include carefully sourced unwanted velvet curtains, denim jeans, a jumper or fabric remnants.
