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 Healâ€™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 itâ€™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.”
â€œI enjoy working with a process,â€¨creating physical things andâ€¨seeing them come to life.â€
