After studying mixed media and constructed textiles at The Royal College of Art, designer Donna Wilson quickly put her educational training to good use. In 2003, she set up her studio and workshop in London, and today she produces handmade products for sale in more than 15 countries. Regarded as one of today's most exciting young textile designers, Wilson's portfolio includes many solo exhibitions, and in 2010 she was honored with a British Design Award. Many things inspire this versatile artist, from her childhood growing up in the Scottish countryside to everyday oddities of life. Perfectly patterned in delightful color combinations, Wilson's Bora Da Collection (2011) is named for a Welsh phrase meaning "good morning" or "good day." Made in England.
Growing up in rural northeast Scotland, the daughter of two farmers, Donna Wilson always knew she wanted to be a designer. True to her youthful ambitions, today she is known for her whimsical prints and knit objects citing Stig Lindberg and Alexander Girard as influences which draw upon her idyllic childhood and the landscape of the Scottish countryside. Wilson, who is regarded as one of the most exciting young textile designers in the industry, studied textiles at Gray's School of Art in Aberdeen, Scotland, and earned her Master's in mixed media and constructed textiles at The Royal College of Art in London.
