GILL HEWITT 

Gill Hewitt designs and creates bespoke textiles to compliment and enhance architectural interiors, presenting more unified, multifunctional, flexible and sustainable spaces.

The innovative development of the non-woven designs explores the link between architecture, design and art.  Architecture creates a dialogue between the exterior and interior, enhanced by the introduction of nature inspired textile designs, creating a more cohesive and enriched whole. Focus is on the changing qualities of light and ambience; elements of tactility and consideration of acoustic comfort.  The relationship between elements is also explored materially through the process of layering, with layers responding to each other in an interplay of light and shadow.

Gill uses a variety of techniques to produce her textiles including Photography, Needlepunching, Tufting, Digital Printing and Screen Printing.
