I am thrilled to be able to share some inspirational art and design with you every Tuesday morning as Rachael's 'Art and Creative Writer'. This week, we're featuring the fun folk art of Nancy Nicholson.
Nancy is a freelance graphic designer and artist, working primarily with paper and textiles. She has recently developed a collection of designs for three dimensional paper products, stitch kits for home embroidery, and a range of poster designs.
Based in Kent, Nancy is continuing a rich family heritage in textile design. Her father, Roger was a textiles lecturer at the Royal College of Art, an artist and wallpaper designer, whilst her mother, Joan, was a leading figure in the revival of stitch crafts from the 1950s through to the 70s.
I've had my eye on Nancy's gorgeous folk art embroidery kits for a while now and her website has an online shop full of goodies for you to explore. Below is a small selection of what's available from this gifted designer.
More inspiration next Tuesday, have a great week, Justine x
