Taking inspiration from naturalist illustrators and forward thinking icons of times gone by, KellyDawn Riot's brand embodies a unique aesthetic that invokes a sense of the ephemeral and wonder through hand crafted illustrations and paintings. Her printed textiles are inspired by traditional naturalist illustrators, so, in keeping with that tradition, Kelly sat in galleries and museums drawing and sketching before painting the images through traditional watercolour techniques. The aim is to create pieces of wearable art that will continue to inspire: crawling with details and minutiae that will never cease to amaze. Pieces are made using remnants from local Scottish mills or natural fabrics such as cottons and linens, making them strong and durable, while the Eco friendly printing techniques and the attention to detail ensure that each piece is a treasure: inspired by nature, designed for life.
