More about Susi Bellamy
Susi Bellamy creates vibrant, colourful interiors based on original and unique artwork painted in the studio, and hand marbled paper designs created using a traditional technique. Her artwork is inspired by her great love of colour, her background as a fashion editor and her time working and living in Florence.
The designs feature rich, exuberant colours and recall the layering and marbling of paint. This brings to mind the rough texture of ancient Palazzo wall surfaces with spaces that seem to contain their own layers of distance and perspective, encrusted with strata of both landscape and surface decoration. The rich texture and subtle mark making created in Susi's paintings and papers are digitally transferred to both luxurious velvet and mica wallpaper. This high quality printing process harnesses the rich texture of the artwork onto the surface and emphasises the dynamism and depth of her designs.
Susi Bellamy’s collection is made in England from start to finish using the highest quality materials. Each design punctuates any interior with flashes of visual impact in a range of colour combinations. The designs work in conjunction with each other to create a maximalist explosion of colour, or individually as a statement piece to add a striking colour accent to any room. Their combination of uniqueness, colour and vibrancy will impact any interior in the same way as a piece of artwork. Susi will be showcasing her original art and homewares alongside smaller giftable items such as washbags and luxurious silk scarves.
