I was very lucky to spend the week before Christmas (and my birthday) in Marrakesh. We stayed in a beautiful riad soaking up the sights and sounds of the city. I was expecting lots of amazing patterns and architecture and I was not disappointed. Lots of inspiration for 2015 Atelier Boyceau projects! Here is a selection of the images that have inspired me so far.
Oh, and happy new year!

My current obsession! Takes precision, patience and imagination! I am currently covered in paint and have a bloody finger. Worth it 😉 Look out for my t-shirt creations coming soon for Atelier Boyceau on Etsy.
On a recent trip to the Compton Verney country mansion and museum in Warwickshire, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a small exhibition of Enid Crystal Dorothy Marx’s work (1902-1998).
An artist, textile designer, illustrator and author, Marx was incredibly talented and successful throughout her career.
I am in the midst of a block printing project for Atelier Boyceau, and as such this discovery couldn’t have come at a better time. I have always loved geometric patterns and abstract images and am currently working on t-shirt designs to add to my collection. I have just purchased a linoleum printing set to try out and my mind is racing with possibilities. As always watch this space!
