Textile Tuesday: Fanny Shorter

Happy Textile Tuesday

Have you seen my latest crush?

Fanny Shorter has a new fan! 

Fanny is a designer and printmaker. Her distinctive, detailed work is largely inspired by her very English upbringing. She grew up in the quintessentially English county town of Winchester, surrounded by historic architecture and idyllic countryside. Her childhood home was filled with vibrant, idiosyncratic, colourful prints and patterns on books, plates, cushions, rugs and wallpaper. Rural, country holidays reinforced her love of  nature and frequent childhood visits to the V&A, the Natural History Museum and National Trust properties formed an enduring influence on her designs and how her work is manufactured.  

Fanny originally trained as an illustrator at Brighton University and her clients included Twinings, the Cutty Sark, the Wellcome Collection and Mr Jones Watches. In 2011 she established her  eponymous range of textiles, prints and accessories from her studio at Cockpit Arts in London. Stockists of her work include the William Morris Gallery, Liberty and the Southbank Centre.

Here are a few favorites:
