In conversation with Morgan McFie

This week Les 100 Ciels met Morgan McFie, a contemporary abstract artist based in Barnes. Morgan’s paintings are intuitive, fluid and full of texture, taking inspiration from aerial perspectives of natural landscapes. Read more to learn the intricate and fascinating process of giving life to a canvas. Where and how did you learn your craft? I have always loved being creative and painting. I nearly did an art degree, but chose the safe route of doing a business degree at the end. After university, I wanted to get back to being creative so started painting again in my spare time. Things really changed when I moved to New Zealand for a year and was hugely inspired by the art scene in Australia and New Zealand where artists use bright and bold colours. I began experimenting with abstract fluid techniques and then once I started using resin I felt like I’d found my style.   Your latest art pieces are beautiful. What inspires your art? I find aerial perspectives of coastlines and estuaries really beautiful and I look to try and capture the movement and subtlety of tones in my paintings. I find traveling also hugely inspiring and recently found lots ...

In Wool We Trust | Campaign for wool

To mark the global Campaign for Wool, we would like to show our commitment to natural fibres, particularly wool. Read on to learn why wool is a good choice for you, the environment and the fashion industry. Wool is a fibre that comes from the fleece of sheep. Providing warmth, comfort and durability, wool is also a natural and renewable resource for clothing manufacturing. Wool fibres have tiny air pockets that keep you warm in winter and cool in summer by absorbing or releasing moisture in the air. Wool is also easy to clean and resistant to stains. A natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre. Wool has a complex makeup, naturally cleaning the air we breathe around us. Wool has a high nitrogen content making it naturally fire resistant. Shearing sheep is a vital part of animal care. As wool continuously grows, fleeces can become uncomfortable for sheep especially in warmer weather. Why do we use wool? Wool fibres come from a renewable resource and are not man-made and so do not exhaust precious resources in our environment. Wool is an amazing yarn for creating new designs. A durable and high quality fibre, wool keeps its shape so your jumpers can look their best for years to come.   Where does our wool come from? Our wool is sourced from Australian sheep farms, ...
