Natalie Gilliland is a textile illustrator-designer, that specialises in print. Her creations are based on discovering new in the old.
Natalie has always been inspired by vintage/retro designs. These objects inspire an unconventional form of art. The history and life that the objects have led directs Natalie to create new and innovative designs that juxtapose the past with future-facing processes. Natalie takes a contemporary approach to her artwork by combining photography, acetone printing and illustration to form multiple layers. The work of Elephantine Pocket is directed towards an audience who still find the beauty in the past.
