Jason I and florals

Jason I and florals

Artist – Claire Stevens

Design Description

The design is inspired by ‘Aeroplane wallpaper’, designed in the early 1930s by Raymond McGrath. It is said to have been commissioned by a woman aviator in 1933. This could have been Amy Johnson. The design features the silhouette of ‘Jason I’. the aeroplane that Amy Johnson flew on her longest trip. The design incorporates a gentle floral pattern, with the aeroplane motif, reflecting the femininity that Amy Johnson brought to the aviation world.

Artist Statement

I am an innovative artist who likes to use bright colours and a variety of media. I have trained in print design for textiles and I enjoy using print making in my work. I make both wearable garments that are bright and beautiful art pieces ad 2D work using acrylic paints and mixed media.

All of my work aims to be bright, joyous and celebratory in nature. I am inspired by everything in the word around me – particularly plants, trees and flowers.
