Healey and James

Monday, 4 November 2013

A visit to Healey & James in Hampshire reveals an exquisite display of hand crafted textiles and artefacts from India. In amongst the cut-back appliqué quilts, jacquard woven throws and decorative accessories lies the studio of artist Rachel Healey, who uses a mixture of oil paint and pastels to achieve the deep, warm rich colours of her work.

The still life artworks are filled with natural blooming arrangements, which are set against the backdrop of the surrounding textiles.
