My inspiration comes from an idea that everyone wants to have something special, or as I call it LOVE-MADE. If people produce only things made with love we would have less recycling and more satisfaction. As wholesale made things have no soul, they can be enjoyable only for couple of days. All items I create are very fashionable as well as unique.

Lorna’s designs evolve as a direct response to the screen-printing process. She enjoys working intuitively with a variety of imagery; layering, covering up and revealing is the core element of her practice. After working in interiors, fashion/costume for many years her imagery often has traces of these recurrent influences as well as the natural environment. She works directly from source, drawing and re-drawing images exploring a variety of media and deliberately changing the line, tone and mark making qualities of the drawing. She often combines photographic elements. “My overarching interest is in the surface pattern and rhythm, the spaces between the imagery and the colour palette”. Working with opaque and transparent ink gives her control of which areas to reveal or cover up. By overprinting, masking areas to reveal the previous images, she builds up a layered history of each moment.
Lorna has carried out commissions of hand-printed textile lengths, panels and wallpaper for events, parties and window displays. She has collaborated with other designers who require specific fabric prints for furniture, fashion and costume. She is currently developing her range of interior products under the design label, Blessed Unrest.
