This collection was inspired by a trip my husband and I took to South Africa in 2012 - I’ve long wanted to make artwork in response to it, but nothing seemed to feel right. Fast forward a few (ahem…several) years and I found that when trying to design my first full collection of fabric, South Africa immediately came to mind as my inspiration.
These images are inspired by so many wonderful memories - hearing zebras sniff around our stand-alone room in the middle of the night (in the middle of a game reserve), watching cheetahs run with such ease, coming across a terrifying snake on a hike up table mountain in Cape Town, the stonework in Stellenbosch, a rainy-damp run in Knysna (and beaching our boat in the bay) … and there was so much more I wanted to include, but just didn’t have space for. Hopefully that means there will be a second edition :)
Here’s to many more wonderful adventures and memories!
