Marcella Wylie belongs to a bold generation of emerging UK illustrators and textile designers. Her vibrant and invigorating work bridges the gap between textile design and illustration - drawing inspiration from nature, particularly the inherent beauty in flora and fauna.
“I enjoy celebrating the extraordinary diversity of nature, its shapes and forms, as well as its bold, and sometimes unexpected, colour. My work is often mixed media, but the use of watercolour (alongside inks) features heavily - resulting in ornate and eye-catching pieces.”
Marcella studied textile design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, graduating in 2008.
Since then she has been based in her home city of Glasgow and has worked for both private and corporate clients around the world.
As well as having passion for traditional hand drawn illustration, Marcella has developed a love of photography and avidly documents her floral inspiration wherever she goes.
