RECENT REVIEWS - "Fiona is a true artist. We described what we were looking for based on her other work and the "commissioned" pillow she sent absolutely exceeded our expectations. In addition, she was lovely to work with. Communication was completely clear, and shipping (even across the pond) was as swift as possible. If you're looking to find a wonderful finishing touch to your room, or even a design on which to base your room, consider Colorbloom!"

Just had a great day @ Etsy press day for Christmas 2016 showing a selection of my hand-painted velvet cushions. Thanks to the Etsy team for organising it.
Painting some more blended pastel blue and pastel pink for an order.
One of the many pink variations I can do in any size. This one is a rose pink and tangerine orange.

About

With a passion for colour and great design, I paint onto fabrics such as silk and velvet and then make them into cushions, bags, scarves and notebooks

Thanks for visiting my shop.

All the items in the shop are designed, hand-painted and made by me after carefully mixing and blending special colours that will work together in a complimentary way. Sketchbooks and mood boards are an important part of my work. I especially love working with velvet as it's so tactile and luscious and the paint when steamed seems to come alive.

I spent many years working in the fashion industry and costume designing for T.V. commercials especially in Los Angeles and London.
I became more and more obsessed with working with beautiful colour and the colours that were available for painting on to silk.
After being told I couldn't obtain certain fabrics as I didn't have a big enough company to make a clothes collection, I decided in frustration at this to make my own!

After a chance encounter with Christian Lacroix in Portobello market I was commissioned to make some tea-pot designed, printed and painted scarves and t-shirt pieces, which were sold in his shop.
I then went onto selling to shops in London, New York and Japan such as Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Space NK, Ally Cappellino and Whistles.

I am inspired by beautiful combinations of color in nature, even decaying flowers - the changing skies and sunsets, birds, butterflies, aged peeling walls, time worn elegance.
