With a new season, brings a new featured designer of the month! We couldn’t be more excited to announce that our next featured artist of The Designer Project will be none other than the amazing Susanna April!
Susanna is an intuitive abstract artist driven by emotion and feeling in her art practice. Her pieces are created from multi-layered acrylic artworks which sing with detail and depth. She lives in Brisbane, sunny QLD, with her two kiddos and husband and loves a good day at the beach.
Her ‘My Hearts Garden ’ collection is vibrant and full of colour, the perfect patterns to bring art to life in your textiles! What’s more fantastic is that the whole collection has been made available in our Fabric Shop online, meaning each of the designs can be printed onto any of our stock fabrics. Below we’ve shared a bit about each of the designs and the types of projects we think they’d be great for so keep reading!
