About

 

My name is Julie Williamson

I am a Textile Designer living and working from my home on the small Island of Whalsay, Shetland Islands.

After graduating I set up my own business creating Printed Textiles, I currently design and create interior products, accessories and unique gifts.
Hoping to expand into more in the future.

My designs are influenced by my rich heritage and culture within the Shetland Islands, inspired by the local imagery, wildlife and folk-lore stories.  

I love old Toile De Jouy scenes and creating my own scenes from memories into beautiful contemporary scenes that have a story to share.
