I am motivated to create BEAUTIFUL OBJECTS inspired by things that I love
– ABOUT AMY –
I am motivated to create beautiful objects inspired by things that I love. Old fabrics and wallpapers, ceramics, lace and embroidery, I guess you could say anything with pattern or texture. My colour palettes are very much influenced by these elements. Flowers in their natural habitat offer so much inspiration right on our doorstep. I love the British countryside and I strive to promote its enchanting qualities.
The way I use colour and texture really defines my work. I notice detail and sustain a design element throughout each process. My background in textiles in an integral part of my work, I visualise how different flowers work together as I would in a painting, pattern or sculpture.
I stay true to my own vision and style. I am truly inspired by so many makers, florists and illustrators, but ultimately I have my own idea of how I want things to look and it’s very instinctive.
I gather inspiration, I draw, photograph and put mood boards together. I create flowers individually, line them up and then spend time on the composition as a florist would, putting a bouquet or arrangement together. It’s about the balance of light, shade, texture and scale.
