Muriel is luxurious, handprinted wallpaper, designed and made with craft by British artist Sarah Jane Palmer, an artist and designer with a passion for pattern, animation and visual trickery. In 2015 she created new design brand Muriel. Twinning contemporary art practice with design for the luxury interiors market, her work is attracting a growing international audience.
"What I love is that I can create subtle movement that a glance could miss, but that a second take might reveal. It makes a space a more interesting place to be, when it keeps showing you something new.”
She is passionate about the importance of developing precision skills by hand, and is a voracious student, constantly adding to a bank of finessed techniques, such as hand-flocking, gold leaf, embossing and building her own wallpaper screen printing press at her studio in Sheffield, England. Handmaking is such an important element of her design – it adds a second layer to that story, creates elements of human touch that give people more to look at, discover, wonder about…
Sarah Jane Palmer is the first person to bring to the world of wallpapers Murielmotion - Interactive, animated wallpapers using traditional printing techniques with Lenticular technology following a very successful crowdfund campaign.
