Long Distance is inspired by some of my favourite motifs and craft traditions across cultures. It bring together Japanese printmaking process alongside references to hand-painted French wallpaper and tiny delicate florals. Traditional elements are updated by a shift in scale and a contemporary color palette. Adding figures to these motifs creates a conversation across time and place, rooting these prints in the present.
I love the variety of prints in this collection. Some feel bright and happy, like tiny celebrations on fabric, while others seem to whisper subtly to another. Long Distance is a life on fabric: it's light and airy, dark and sophisticated, a collection of moments gathered together over countries and lifetimes.
