Subtle animated wallpaper designs, a talking point for any wall. Sarah Jane Palmer is an artist with a passion for illusion and fantastical storytelling. From the historical Nottingham lace trade to the romance of the circus, her designs for wallpaper, prints and textiles draw from her practice, and her tales all come with a twist. `What I love is that I can create stories that a glance could miss, but that a second take might reveal. It makes a space a more interesting place to be, when it keeps showing you something new.`
She is passionate about the importance of developing precision skills by hand, and is a voracious student, constantly adding to a bank of finessed techniques, such as hand-flocking (taught to her by specialists in Frankfurt) and building her own screen printing press and studio in Sheffield, England. Handmaking is such an important element of her design - it adds a second layer to that story, creates elements of human touch that give people more to look at, discover, wonder about...
Each artist designed wallpaper by Muriel Design has that special quality of being more than just pattern. Sometimes erotically-charged, sometimes romantically whimsical, usually only visible with a second glance.
Drawing on historical archives to create designs that will bring intrigue to any room. She is the creator of the first handcrafted animated wallpapers that combines tradition printing with modern technology. She combines both contemporary art practice with design for the luxury interiors market, attracting a growing international audience.
Designs can be customised too - a personalised colour palette can be finished in a range of techniques, such as animated sections, flocking or glitter. The collection is ever-evolving rendered into beautiful intricate pattern work that will make a talking point of any wall.
