About Susannah Weiland
Susannah is a hand embroidery artist who creates one off artworks which she has reproduced for luxury interior products. This includes wallpaper, furnishing fabric, wall plates and hand embroidered cushions. Her style is delicate and intricate, she adds highlights of bright colour with embroidery and beading to pick out details on the insects, birds and animals in her black and white pencil illustrations.
Susannah is passionate about wildlife photography and draws from images she has taken. All her designs are created by hand and intensely hand embroidered taking months to create. She is inspired by the colours and textures found in nature, Kew Gardens was the inspiration for her first collection.
All her designs are printed digitally in the UK onto high quality wallpaper and furnishing fabric. Susannah offers customised and bespoke services.
We Love Susannah Because…
Drawing on her original art and traditional craft skills Susannah imagined a unique approach for a new interior range. Her collection combines contemporary design and exsquisite embroidery blurring the lines between art and decor.

Often working on fast fashion projects designing digitalised prints she was keen to develop a signature style of her own that was all created meticulously by hand.
