Helen Amy Murray


As a designer I am always thinking about how I can create unique and innovative luxury textiles that create an illusion for the viewer, because I achieve a sculptural aesthetic usually associated with solid materials. My philosophy is centred on the importance of handcraftsmanship; all of my textiles are manipulated by hand. I have been running my business HelenAmyMurray for 6 years and my clients range from individual private residences and larger commercial projects usually through interior design and architectural design practices. The applications for my textiles range from bespoke upholstery to wall coverings. I have also recently had my first solo exhibition of non-commission led work. I am developing a special collection of chairs and framed wall pieces that will be available to order through gallery representation in London, Paris and Milan.
