Admiring the bold prints and vibrant colors of Glasgow-based textile designer and maker, Laura Spring. A graduate of Glasgow School of Arts she creates these grpahic prints and transforms them into fashion accessories through screen and digital processes. In an article on Heal’s blog the artist says this about what inspires her:
“Inspiration varies from collection to collection but as I mentioned previously I have been inspired by motifs relating to the function of the object it adorns. More recently I have been inspired by the use of camouflage in nature, specifically how butterflies and zebras use mimicking or colouration techniques to hide from predators.”
“I think nature and all it’s wonder has been having a bigger influence on my work since I did a residency in rural Finland last summer where nature is considered hugely important and people seem much more connected to it.”
“I enjoy working with a process, creating physical things and seeing them come to life.”
