A Designer with a passion for Mid Century Modern Textiles

I have worked as a graphic and interior designer, illustrator, picture book maker and printmaker, but my enduring love is for screen printing, whether in illustration, fine art or on fabric. I fell in love with the bold bright optimism of mid century textile design and have been building a collection of fabrics for some time. It seemed a shame to hide all this gorgeousness away, so I decided to show it off and wear it instead. As soon as I put a favourite fabric onto a linen apron I had made, I knew this was a match made in heaven. I want to share the joy of these stunning fabrics, which are mainly over half a century old but have stood the test of time both in the innovative designs and the quality of the fabrics themselves.
All items are made by me, using my trusty 1956 vintage Singer sewing machine, in my studio in the beautiful rural county of Herefordshire, England.

There are some pieces that are simply stunning as works of art in their own right and these I have chosen to frame. COMING SOON.
The wall art fabrics are all professionally framed. They are carefully mounted with a 100% cotton, acid-free backing board, with window mounts or spacers of the same quality. Finished with UV protective acrylic plexiglass to preserve the fabrics from light damage.

The Illustrated House creates pieces with beautiful, notable, textile design history to keep for posterity, whilst enjoying everyday!
