Inside

Susie Foster

MA work

Interior textiles to intrigue, entice and delight, inspired by the multi-sensory qualities of nature and the curious world of origami and papercraft. Through the sensitive combination of materials and the introduction of the unexpected, my work aims to enhance the spaces of everyday life. By rewarding the senses, engaging the mind and inspiring the imagination, I hope it can aid the creation of more positive living and working environments.
