Hollie Caley's Nostalgic Tea Party!

Hollie Caley has been on my inspirational list for ages and certainly an overdue feature. Since I have given up chocolate and cupcakes for lent I felt I needed to get my sweet fix another way... 

Hollie studied Textile Design at Manchester Metropolitan University and since has focussed on commissions, exhibitions and workshops spreading her creative inspiration and talent. Hollie's work is beautifully feminine,  from the subtle vintage colour palettes she explores to the the delicate cupcakes,  teapots, cake stands and lace she captures in her designs. I am intrigued to look closer at Hollie's designs as they are full of inspirational textures created by a combination of drawing, printing, machine stitch and collage. Additional trinkets and memorabilia including buttons, pearls, stamps and storybook pages add quirkiness and a distinctive nostalgic quality.
