|*Seriously want this on my wedding dress...|
Monday, 16 March 2015
I woke up at 7am today, eager to get the drawing board, but then stupidly logged onto my PC to do some proofing work and voilà - before you know it I am looking at pin boards on Pinterest and watching YouTube videos. Oh well! Never mind - it's all feeding into the bigger picture and I feel that looking at pictures is an incredibly important part of a creative life. It's inspiring.
So... thought I'd share some of it with you. Here is the work of Natalia Grzybowski. It's stunning - you know how I love my textiles and fashion! As I am already uber late for work in the studio (it is now 11.30am), I am going to point you in the direction of other blogs in case you want to ready more about it. All Big Trees is a fab blog (I think she and I are online soul mates as she works in a museum) and she's done a lovely pictorial post with botanical paintings alongside the dresses. There is also The Herring Bone Bindery, who have given more context to the collection and of course Natalia's own blog. I feel that this collection really empowers the botanical art and its applications. All good stuff.
