We are coming out of lockdown with a fantastically colourful expo by Sligo based artist and designer Jerusha Marley.
May Expo at the SG ArtShop.
Jerusha Marley is a Fashion Designer/Illustrator based on the Wild West Coast of Ireland.Born in Gloucestershire, England, raised in Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. Jerusha studied Fine and Applied Arts in the University of Ulster, York St, Belfast graduating with a BA(hons)Degree in Fine and Applied Arts.
The inspiration for her artworks is taken from Shamanic practice, the local land around her and Celtic Mythology. All her artworks are hand drawn from start to finish. From here they are digitized and sent to Lake Como, Italy where a team of some of the finest Artisans translate her artworks onto luxury silk. The entire process to create just one silk is done with much love, inspiration, creativity and attention to detail. With that in mind only very small quantities of each artwork are taken to print creating a very special, luxurious and unique piece of wearable art.
Recently Jerusha has created The Antique Saree Project – Smock Dresses
This stunning project launches with a collection of smock dresses intricately and masterfully tailored together with the use of antique Indian Saree fabrics. Each dress is one of a kind and contains a mixture of the luxurious antique and vintage silks, cottons and velvets.
A wondrously sustainable collection Made on the West Coast of Ireland. Bringing new life to beautiful fabrics to treasure again for lifetimes to come.You can see an example at the Expo.
The Dutch company Artipoppe, the fashion forward high-end baby carrier brand, commission Jerusha exclusively to design their gorgeous packaging.Some of these fantastic boxes are also on display at the Expo
