Charlotte Edey is an artist & illustrator working across print and tapestry. Softly surreal, her work explores identity and the politics of space within feminine and unnatural scenes. Touching on modernist architecture and spiritualism, the spaces are punctuated with organic symbolism and miniature women of colour. The use of scale explores the power of creating and occupying space. 

Quiet | Tapestry
“Originally illustrated in fineliner and pencil, the design explores the idea of sanctuary. Drawing inspiration from contemporary private chapels, the tapestry can be rotated four ways to reveal a different meditative scene of calm, overlooking a mountain range.”
