Artist Gill Wright works from her studio in Saltburn-by-the-Sea in the UK, creating unique fashion art prints that tell captivating style stories to suit contemporary interiors. She also accepts commissions for a variety of clients and has worked on editorial and product illustrations as well as portraits and branding.?
Gill graduated from the University of Northumbria with a BA(Hons) in Fashion Design in the early nineties and has since expanded upon a twenty-four year career combining Fashion Design, Graphic Design and Illustration by launching independently. She remembers her fashion roots fondly:
?The first Paris show I ever saw was as a student in the early nineties. It was Commes des Gar?ons and the combination of collection, models and music seriously moved me to tears. I knew I was doing the right degree!??
?Making notes, sketching shows and creating shop reports was a huge part of my daily creative process and I loved bringing all of that together with illustration. The collections that inspired me were always those in which I perceived the woman as quietly confident in her style and one of my proudest moments on showing my own degree show was when Iain R Webb described my collection in?The Times?as ?shamelessly cool and elegant?. I really felt I?d achieved what I set out to do in portraying the women I?d admired so much on other catwalks.?
Shortlisted for the FIDA awards in 2020 and about to launch a new range of silk squares, Gill is inspired by fashion and ??all things design?, working with a variety of media from charcoal and watercolour to inks and acrylics with some collage and is always exploring new techniques. She has the ability to capture a mood with the sketch of an eye and her focus is always the individual sophistication of the subject. With her high end quality Gicl?e prints, Gill?s mission is to help those wanting sophistication in their home or environment with something that expresses their individuality and uniqueness.
?I believe in offering beautiful, quality art that lasts. My Gicl?e prints use archival inks on acid-free Hahnem?hle Fine Art stock so they are designed for life?.
