Last summer a selection of my collages were bought to feature in the bedrooms and suites of a stunning new hotel, the King Street Townhouse in Manchester’s city centre. The hotel opened earlier this year and I was recently invited to take a look around to see them in place. The hotel is beautiful, intriguing and unique and I am so delighted to be a part of it and to be amongst such an eclectic gathering of fabulous artworks.
” When finding Art for our Hotels, I’m looking for something, a bit different & occasionally quirky, that’ll add to the ambience & atmosphere of a room, giving our guests cause to look, not the run of the mill you often find in a hotel bedroom.
I arrived at the Manchester Craft & Design Centre hoping to do just that. I came across Clare Hillerby, her collages are individual, each one carefully & cleverly created separately, the only downside it can make them hard to choose from!
I really like her eclectic mix of objects & artefacts, bringing old & new in a colourful & imaginative composition.
Her art sits well with our bedroom design. “
