Inspired by her upbringing on a small fish farm in rural Aberdeenshire, Scotland, much of Johanna's work has roots in the flora and fauna that she has grown up with. Her boundless imagination and passion for drawing, took her to Art School in Dundee, where she graduated with a first class honours degree in Printed Textiles in 2005.
Having dabbled with the idea of moving to London to work in a commercial studio, Johanna decided the concrete clad city sapped her creativity. Driven by a passion to create beautiful work of the highest possible calibre, Johanna set up her small Scottish studio creating distinctively different hand drawn motifs in her signature black and white palette.
In addition to creating her own collection of hand printed wallpapers which now adorn the walls of commercial and residential spaces across the globe, Johanna has created work for a variety of clients such as DKNY, Heals and The Crafts Council at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
We will be publishing a series of limited edition silkcreen and giclee printsfeaturing Johanna Basford's designs in Spring 2009 in a variety of sizes and colours.
