I'm happy to announce a new guest-writer for Bloesem...her name is Joëlle and ever since she was a little child her family loved to call her Sjoe Sjoe. She is a designer in Amsterdam, specialized in designing products, fashion, prints and concepts. And lucky to work for HEMA (you know everyone's most loved shop in the Netherlands)...she started a very nice blog and the coming weeks she will share some of her great finds with us on Wednesdays...Welcome Sjoe Sjoe!
Today Joëlle starts with a introducing us to the talented Laura McCafferty...
One of my favourite artists is Laura McCafferty. I would love to have one of her art pieces on my wall! By seeing her fun fabric art I really get inspired! Every now and then Laura pops up in all kinds of musea all over the world. I saw a great exhibition of her in Bath Fashion Museum last year.
After her graduation in 2003 Laura became pretty successful. She makes beautiful mixes of line drawings, fabric appliques, screen-prints and hand-stitches. With her work she shows, on a very humorous way, the ordinary life of ordinary people.
