Inspired By… Jess Priest

Last week, illustrator and painter Jess Priest came into the Jacques Vert studio to do a print painting techniques masterclass with the designers. We caught up for lunch with Jess after the class to find out what inspires her…

The Jacques Vert design team loved their flower painting workshop! Have you always enjoyed painting flowers?

I’ve always loved painting and drawing. My Mum was a graphic designer, so I had a very creative upbringing. I went to Winchester School of Art and graduated in Fashion Print in 2000. The best piece of advice I had there from a visiting lecturer was, that if you could paint a flower, then you would be able to find a job in textile design. She wasn’t wrong and soon after graduating I found myself working for a top print design studio in London where I painted flowers all day long. Working in a textile studio is very fast paced, and under that pressure you soon find your own handwriting and develop techniques which work. I’ve always been in work off the back of a good old floral design!

How did you become a painting teacher?

The power of social media! I’d been freelancing from my home studio since having my daughters and been thankful that I could be at home with them. I joined Instagram a couple of years ago and started to put up pictures of my floral paintings and design work. I kept getting asked if I taught classes or would do some private painting tuition, so started to do a few workshops in fashion and textile studios. My classes have really taken off and through word of mouth and social media I’ve been able to keep teaching. I also have workshops in Marlow, Buckinghamshire which is where I’m based. These are open to everyone and take place about eight times a year. I’m really happy that Instagram has opened up a new direction for me, I’ve met loads of lovely people through teaching and its great to be passing on techniques and skills to people who want to expand on their skill set or maybe haven’t picked up a paint brush in a while.

What inspires your painting?

For me its about being very hands on with the mediums which I use. I don’t think theres anything like having a proper paintbrush in your hand and seeing a flower come alive on that white piece of paper. I love ink which is great for creating layers in my work, It really lends itself to capturing the feeling of delicate petals and foliage. I’m always trying different mediums and trying out new techniques to keep my work looking fresh. I will never get tired of painting a flower though, I’m happiest when choosing what to paint in the florists.

You also do printed textile design, who have you designed prints for?

Its been a varied customer base. I’ve had prints in a lot of High street stores such as M&S, Debenhams and Next as well as Anthropologie, Toast and Vera Wang.

How would you describe your day to day style?

I love a bit of sports luxe! There are so many gorgeous prints out there in sportswear. I like to keep things simple and pair a few key pieces with buys from the high street each season.

Jacques Vert New Season Prints

This Spring/Summer 2017 season, our amazing design team have been hard at work painting and designing the beautiful new season prints showcased in the collections.

 

Most of Jacques Vert’s new season prints are designed and painted in-house, in our London design studio. The team research and travel for inspiration, then come up with a series of design concepts. Inspiration can be gathered from anywhere – beautiful places and landscapes, architecture and interiors, old buildings. Nature is a favourite, with rivers and the sea inspiring many colours, and florals and botanicals inspiring many prints. These inspirations are then hand painted or digitally worked into prints, and the favourites are produced.

From there the prints can be altered to suit different colour palettes or scaled to suit different trend pieces. Particular sections of the prints can be focused upon or made to stand out, depending on the garment and what will suit the style of the product.

These new season prints are mainly based on beautiful florals and natural botanicals. The prints showcased in the Sahara collection use blurred floral techniques that have been created digitally. These were inspired by dreamy and hazy mirage style scenes from the Sahara desert.

Be inspired by the stunning new season prints from Jacques Vert.

Winter Beauty Hacks

shot_19_131

 

The cold weather can have an everlasting effect on your skin, hair and just general wellbeing. With the lack of sunlight and vitamin C during the colder months, it is essential you give yourself that little bit more attention. Here are our top 3 beauty pick me ups designed to help you cheat the chill and adapt your daily beauty regime.

1. Moisturise in the shower

With the cold weather brings chapping and dry skin, a good way to eradicate this is to moisturise before you’ve even left the shower! Many skincare brands such as Nivea, do in-shower body creams and washes. Not only do they leave you clean and smelling lovely, they also diminish any dryness whilst your skin is still moist.

 2. Revitalise your lips

With winter comes chapped lips. It’s a given, and the more you try to wet them, the drier they get. Always apply lip balm, oil or Vaseline throughout the day to keep them moist and protect them against the bitterness.

3. De-Frizz your hair

You’d have thought that the heat was the only thing that could damage your hair. This is untrue. During the colder months the icy air and outbursts of rain, snow or even hail can damage your locks, so what do you do in this case, apart from wearing a hat? You give yourself a weekly hair treatment. This could be in the form of an oil or de-fizz spray you apply when the hair is still damp.
