The exquisite Passion Blue design features my illustrations of swallows, passion-flowers, woodland and architecture in the city of Bath, with shimmering sky blue colour tones.
This beautiful silk scarf is part of the Moon Tree collection. My drawings for this collection have been inspired by folk stories and fairytales, including an anonymous writer in 1703 who hypothesized that swallows fly to the moon to hibernate each year. An illustration of the moon can be found in each design and I have long been fascinated by the metaphorical power of forests and woodland in fairytales.
Passion Blue comprises a range of luxurious silk scarves, clutch bags, purses, silk covered brooches and mirrors. The scarves are carefully finished with a hand machine rolled edge.
