Francesca Chalk | Textile Worker
My background is in graphic design and illustration. After years of working in children's book design I became increasingly keen to produce work which wasn't mass produced.
I have always been interested in textiles and came to realise that it offered the perfect combination for me to pursue both design and craft.
Although I take my inspiration from traditional sources such as folk art and nature I always try to add something new and contemporary to my interpretation.
Even when working to a commission my aim is always to produce something that can be appreciated for its utility as well as its attractiveness.
