Influenced by Nature is the creative vision of British Print and Textile Designer, Sophie Ashton.
I established Influenced by Nature in 2016, shortly after graduating from my Textile Design degree. From my first solo trip to the Lake District a few years back, I naturally gravitated towards taking photographs of nature (mainly rocks textures and patterns) in hidden & wonderful places which then lead me onto creating abstract and colourful prints which I then turn into unique and enchanting pieces of art.
Naturally a countryside gal, I really care about nature & the environment so being a sustainable brand using natural based fabrics, inks & packaging which are all environmentally friendly is important to me and something I've been working towards in the last year or so. Especially in today’s society, making people more aware of how we can all do our bit in being more sustainable in our every day lives, is something I’d like to achieve.
