maria hatling. a signature style

this tuesday i'm not only drawn to thoughts of spring & summer, but to the lively, clean, nature~inspired textile and print designs of maria hatling. good news & a fab find if you are a pillow junkie like me!

hatling grew up in norway but currently lives and works in london. reminiscent in her designs though, are those open, care~free scandinavian lines and concepts. hatling rejects many traditional printmaking techniques, choosing to create her artwork, freehand and input that artwork directly into the computer for printing. the result is just that, pure exploration...her work shows testing the boundaries between "color, shape, texture, space, technology and tradition." plus, they're just really great designs ;) bonus!

hey, hey for tuesday friends! what's on your agenda today? i'm working on the never ending reading and researching for my courses. but, in between all of that, i'm going to attempt this do~it~yourself project for a birthday gift. i already have the candle sticks, i am heading out this afternoon to purchase the paint. if it comes out really great, i'll snap some pictures. enjoy!
