I am a surface designer and divide my time between my business, Gina Pierce Design, and running the BA Textile Design course at London Metropolitan University.
I design and produce wallpapers, fabrics and products, printed to order, and I also take commission work. My designs are inspired by our environment and history. I am particularly interested in using imagery that reminds us of buildings, events or people from the past which may have been forgotten, or are neglected and overlooked. I believe in keeping a sense of individuality within our environments that we can identity with, whether that is within our homes and work places, or in our towns and cities. Current collections draw on imagery from old maps, faded damasks, peeling walls and memorabilia.
