  “This idea has been simmering in the background of my mind for many years. About 2 years ago I was discussing with a friend of mine whether it would be possible to create animated wallpaper, not sure if it was going to be possible… In 2015 I received a small grant of £300 by SHU Enterprise called ProveIT. I set out to make a small protype so I could test the idea out… and finally here is the prototype AND It works!!! Now all I need is YOUR votes and people to back me with the idea by pledging so I can make this dream idea a reality".

About:

Sarah Jane Palmer is a Sheffield based 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…

How these funds will support this idea:   

So far absolutely everything I have done has been on an shoe string budget. For many years I have really struggled to make ends meet and have worked freelance as an artist within education.  A lot of my work in schools no longer exists due to government changes so I have dreamt of creating a business driven by my passion as an artist. 

Raising this money will help me to make this idea a reality and to create a recognised design brand and a collection of new animated designs using this wonderful process. It will enable me to officially launch a product unlike any other onto the interior design market and also to create a collection of animated prints.

The designs can also be customised using a personalised colour palette, bespoke or can be finished in a range of techniques, such as flocking or glitter. Raising this money would allow me to have the time so that I can focus on the business rather than chasing money to pay bills. I plan to incorporate iridescent shades, more finishes and new clever little techniques that are rendered into beautiful intricate pattern work that will make a talking point of any wall.
