Creative Quarters...Jiah Harrison

The next designer to be featured in Creative Quarters is Jiah Harrison.

Jiah is an artist and designer living and working from a home studio in the beautiful, mountainous Grampians region of Victoria, Australia.
 She runs an art and design studio called Elephant & Rose specialising in licensing colourful and unique surface pattern designs. 
Her work is bold and joyful, incorporating hand cut shapes, painterly brush strokes and hand drawn textures. Above all she loves colour and draws inspiration from her life in regional Australia, the optimism she feels being surrounded by beautiful mountains and farm land, the freedom and simplicity of regional life, the abundant colours in nature and the intersection of  landscape and architecture.

Jiah graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art specialising in textile design in 2010 at the Australian National University and since then has worked in interior design and started a family while tirelessly working on her art and surface design skills.

2018 is shaping up to be a very big year for Elephant & Rose... 
 Now that her youngest child is off to day care, Jiah can finally pursue her dream of being a full time artist and designer. She has just created a small collection of art prints for sale in her Etsy shop and released a range of fabrics with Nerida Hansen Prints. 
She has some exciting collaboration projects including fashion and jewellery launching in early 2018 (keep an eye on her instagram for details) and is very excited to be working on brand new prints for her debut at Surtex, New York in May 2018.
