The wall hangings by Michelle House were vibrant and painterly, in clear colours which called out to the viewer "Look at me". I loved the clean lines and colours.
To quote from Michelle's handout, and with her permission:
"Inspiration comes in many guises, often the pattern and geometry within architecture and the landscape spotted on walks through London, also the physical act of mixing and layering of colours, the texture of fabrics and the printing process. I use dye pastes, pigments, and sometimes pigment discharge to screen-print and paint onto a variety of textiles...I am increasingly using the computer to design and plan, and for adjusting and editing sections of photographs before they are transferred onto screens."
The Portfolio page on Michelle's website at www.michellehouse.co.uk shows her wonderful work. In the meantime, here is a selection to whet your appetite:
The photographs below show some of Louise's works. We wait eagerly for her website....
