So with Made in Clerkenwell done and dusted I thought I’d take some time out of my busy schedule to let you know about another designer. Charlotte Kirkland creates fantastic illustrated prints – at the moment she produces her gorgeous designs onto cards and cushions, I would love some of her ducks on my bathroom wall.
Where did you study or when did you start making jewellery?
I studied at Winchester School of Art, It’s a beautiful place!
Do you have a particular designer that influences you or you take inspiration from?
I love anything that’s nature inspired and looks a little bit botanical, old fashioned with a twist I guess. I think the work of Thomas Paul is absolutely amazing, Thornback and Peel are great, and I find the work of Jen Rowland really interesting. I love her use of colour and the work has a very naturalistic feel about it.
I see you use lithography in your work, how did you end up using this process?
I use the process mainly because of how unpredictable it can be. I love the effect that I get from Xerox, and I think that it complements the botanical style illustrations I create.
