I had to be patient with this one but it payed off big time!
Shirly’s “Seasons Collection” blew me away! The fact that she thinks about the object and the out come of her prints from that start makes it even more spectacular, in my book.
A little bird told me that there is something new right around the corner so stay tuned and stop by Shirly’s blog for more from her brilliant heart and soul!
Hope you’ll find my One On One Break with Shirly refreshing with this heat wave ;)

I’d love to hear about you, your journey, how it all began.
It took me a long time to decide what to learn, I knew I wanted something from the Art or Design studies but nothing fit me just right. Once I discovered Shenkar’s Textile Design Department, I knew that is what I wanted to study and become. Shirly
Can you describe your work process for me?
My design process usually starts with an image I have in my mind, and around it I develop a concept. I always start abstracting and drawing my image in my sketchbook. In some projects I immediately start working with materials and some require scanning the sketches, multiplying them making them into a pattern and then back to the materials. Shirly
Which materials do you work with?
I work mainly with textile (natural and synthetic) and paper. Shirly
What is the most unusual piece you have ever designed?
Tough question, I don’t have one answer. Shirly

Now that you are done with your studies, what’s next? What is your dream?
My dream is to open a studio and workshop for textile printing and textile products. I also aspire to collaborate with other designers from different fields. Shirly
I’m curious to know where does your inspiration come from?
My inspiration comes from observing my personal environment, the world, nature, the city, newspapers, books, television, movies and small details to wrap it up … from everything. Shirly
Can you tell me which designers inspire you?
William Morris, Issey Miyake, Marimekko, Tord Boontje, and Tzuri Gueta, all great textile designers. Shirly
