‘The View from Here’ is a collection of one off garments and scarves by Carole Waller in which the painted marks contrast with screen printed images of trees framed in letterbox like strips –  as seen through the windows here. Inspired by the magnificent trees, poplars, box elder, silver birch that surround my home and studio just outside Bath in the UK – observed and photographed with great attention during the winter of 2020/2021 and looking forward to a colourful joyous spring and summer.

There is only one of each handpainted piece, and this is a raglan sleeve tunic dress in bamboo satin. It has a fantastic sheen which renders the painting in greys and silver a metallic quality. I call the red box ‘the control box’.

You can commission the any of my pieces in the colours of your choice –  inspired by other colourways in the rest of my collection of shirts, coats, jackets and scarves.
