Our latest White Stuff Nurtures Talent collaboration celebrates the work of Glasgow School of Art
graduate, Eve Campbell, with a collection inspired by land and shore on Scotland's West Coast.
The Glasgow School of Art graduate and a lover of Scottish nature and architecture works from her print studio in Tighnabruaich on the West Coast of Scotland where she creates textiles and ceramics, interpreting nature in abstract form.
I was given my first screen for screen printing on my 10th birthday - that’s when my love for designing printed textiles and pattern really began.
My sketchbooks inform my whole collection and are used continuously from the beginning to the end of my design process. From this I move to paper stenciling and finally to screen printing to create the prints.
My prints try to capture
microcosms of nature’s
colour, pattern, shape
Much of the West Coast of Scotland is a remote wilderness. However, you’ll find pockets of hinterland, areas on the brink of survival, in subdued tones with hints of jewel-like vibrancy from bright yellow lichen, to bright green pine needles.
I am used to designing patterns for interiors, using big prints and bold colours, so it’s a special moment seeing patterns that were once on my print table come to life as a collection.
My favourite thing to do in autumn is to go bramble picking make a tasty bramble and apple crumble. Crumble is my absolute favourite dessert.
