Yorkshire Wolds, UK
Hello, I’m Sally Roydhouse, I currently live on the beautiful Isle of Skye where I run a small home business called Fabric Mountain which started from a mountain of fabric! I love the art of David Hockney, Picasso, Magritte, Hundertwasser & Warhol, all artists I greatly admire. I swoon over the arts and crafts & art nouveau movement, from William Morris to Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Did I say I love the Apple Macintosh computer too! I marvell at typography and influences in graphics and fonts which have evolved through the Bauhaus school and are evident in European political posters of the 1920’s. In recent years my graphic design background has taken me on a journey discovering a new passion for collage, pattern & textile work. Inspiration comes from anywhere and everywhere, I look for rhythms and cycles in nature, repeating patterns, colours and textures. My work includes textile jewellery and more recently surface pattern design for my own collection of fabrics which you will find here.
