Sydney textile artist and illustrator, Marta Madison of Drawn to Fashion Fine Art, has launched her own scarf range, featuring the iconic gum leaf and other floral motifs. Marta Madison, originally from Canada, has lived in Australia for over 30 years. She enjoys the Australian bush and was inspired to create this design as a way to capture the wonderful colours found in nature. An experienced and talented silk painter, her practice encompasses fashion sketching, sculpture, drawing and fine art.
Marta says, “I was walking in the bush near Naremburn, NSW when I looked down and noticed how many colourful gum leaves lay before me. I really had to capture the essence of these gifts from the bush and painted the original scarf in an afternoon.” The original artwork quickly sold, but not before Marta scanned the original scarf and digitally printed them at an Alexandria print facility.
“The quality is amazing, the silk is so sheer and the dye sublimation really does the colours justice. They just pop!” says Marta.
She is excited to share her love of the natural beauty of Australia through her art and has also created two other designs, Poppies and Roses Roses (pictured above), inspired by her love of flowers and enhanced with luminous gold paint. All scarves are signed by the artist and retail for $120.00.
