Art Becomes Design
Art and design are often interchangeable. In January I began providing technical design services to the talented artist Este MacLeod. She is a prolific fine art painter and wanted to launch a printed fabric collection of her paintings. In the last 2 months I have digitized more than 30 of her beautiful paintings and used my textile design CAD knowledge to adapt the paintings into half-drop seamless repeats. She will be launching the collection at Blueprint, the surface design and print fair. It’s held in New York on 20-22 May. See Este at Stand 52. She will have new designs available for licensing and collaborative projects. They are suitable for textiles, wallpapers, stationery, illustration, etc.
BBC DJ and presenter Lauren Laverne mentioned our collaboration on her BBC6 radio show recently, when her show’s theme was ‘patterns’.
Other Blueprint exhibitors also use my design services. Feel free to contact me if you are an artist who would like your artworks expertly adapted and digitized for print production. Turn your art into design!
