Over October I flew to China to hand finish a commission for two featured walls for Dior in two of their beautiful stores, one in Changsha and the other in Xi’an. It was the first time a commission had required that a piece of work be enlarged to four times it’s scale and I was invited to hand-finish the work in gold leaf on site. It was an incredible experience and I was hugely inspired by the nature and the culture of China, which I look forward to perhaps incorporating into my new work.
Below is a link to a blog I wrote about my trip and a quick look back at 2018:
Which leads me on to some pretty big news! If you’re thinking of creating a statement wall in your home or work place, I am excited to announce the launch of a new range of seven beautiful wallpapers which are inspired by some of the most exciting projects I have done this year- hand painted wallpaper for five Christian Louboutin stores, hand finished wallpaper for two Dior stores and of course the 8.5 meter long original paintings for Address Downtown hotel. Each of the wallpapers available on the website can be hand-finished in gold leaf and I am also able to create bespoke solutions to ensure you get the perfect, featured wall of your dreams, in any size!
Inspired by the mirrors in the Dior stores, I have also created wallpapers that are repeat patterns of the seven available, so if this is a solution you think you would be interested in, please do get in touch. They have been a lot of fun to create!
