Mikey Short's Profile

About

I am a Wedding Stationery Stylist & Textile Artist mainly working with paper, fabric & other mixed media.

I make my items from a wide range of ephemera - including Papers ,vintage linen, cotton, and 'rescued' items like old buttons, lace etc.

I rarely come home empty handed for bits and pieces to cram into my studio. I am the proverbial magpie . I have a lot of influences but mainly I enjoy :
The light & colours of Southern France , walking through forests, European architecture, photography, sunsets, the ocean, anywhere where nature remains unspoiled ,1930's / 1940's couture, glamour.

I am inspired by vintage finds , french living, the sea, natural materials, countryside, meadows and wide open spaces with wild flower meadows…

Each piece I make is unique, and no two item's are alike because of the handmade aspect and detail. Techniques used are painting, appliques, embroidery, stitching and printing. Very often , when using fabrics they are ' one offs ' or have been salvaged from a Brocante Market .

Bespoke pieces can be made to order to include personalised names etc.
