On the subject of my fascination with florals, I have to share another of my favourite artists, Angie Lewin. Her linocuts, wood engravings, lithographs and screen prints are all inspired by nature (she lived on the Norfolk coast and in the Scottish Highlands). Their colours and the sometimes simplistic geometric quality to her pieces have a very vintage feel and seem to take some inspiration by Lucienne Day or Sanderson patterns from the 1950s. Her designs can be seen everywhere from fabrics to book covers to notecards, to most excitingly, the range of dress fabrics she's just created for the Liberty Autumn Winter 2010 collection (I can wait for a sneak preview!). The prints available to buy on her website make a statement, but don't cost the earth. Definitely worth the investment.
