It’s been an incredibly frustrating day in the studio today as I wrestle with technology. Quite frankly I would like to take my new Apple laptop for a swim in the sea. The best way to calm down is to lie back and look at the sky and remember that none of this really matters.
Fiona Howard is a British designer, known for designing such contemporary classics as Sanderson’s 'Dandelion Clocks'. For over past 25 years she has built her reputation in home furnishing textile design, working closely with her clients in London, Paris, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Her studio is in Brighton, on the Sussex coast, overlooking the sea. Here Fiona creates elegant and vibrant collections of contemporary textile designs, using traditional skills such as lino cut, monoprint, and intricately cut paper techniques. Everything about her work is carefully considered, using only traditional techniques, the papers meticulously prepared, coloured and dried in delicious, signature palettes, then each design first drawn in repeat by hand, from preparatory sketches before application. Fiona’s dedication to design and craftsmanship are hallmarks embedded in her work. View all posts by Fiona
