Textile Designer - Australia
With a background in Art and Design and Interior Design, Josie Dawson creates contemporary textiles and homewares to liven up any living space. Flora and Fauna is a reoccurring theme in Josie’s work, and as she is currently based in Australia there is no shortage of inspiration. “I love to draw natural, organic forms before manipulating them to form stylized motifs or repeat patterns which I think will look great as a print. The overall look is sort of classic with a contemporary twist”.
All of Josie’s textiles are printed by hand on to natural fabrics, using solvent free inks. “I fell in love with the textile printing process while I was studying design and I haven’t looked back since! There’s nothing like the excitement of printing the first proof of a design you have been working on for months.”
Josie is currently designing a new cushion collection while working towards her goal of printing her designs on to fabric by the metre.
