Studio visit with artist Flore de Hoog

For this month’s studio visit we enter the home-studio of Glasgow-based artist Flore de Hoog for an inside look at her practice and body of work. Flore is a textile designer turned free-hand artist who has become best-known for her exquisite hand-drawn wall works, which grace the walls of homes across Scotland. Flore believes that the imperfection and uniqueness of her work are what makes it special and more artwork than wallpaper.

Flore’s designs can also be found on a range of home goods products and prints available to purchase on her website.
