Textiles, Fine Art

Layla Murga’s work explores the expressive nature of materials, form and colour in a variety of applications including textiles, painting and assemblage.

Layla’s textile work incorporates hand painted and printed techniques resulting in wearable accessories. Colour is a vital element and she draws on her Italian roots for much of her design inspiration.

Conversely her abstract painting and assemblage offers new ways of seeing; ordinary shapes and textures suggest another realm perpetually just beyond reach but surfacing in abstract imagery and the universal / eternal language of signs and symbols.

Layla completed a BA in Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in 1995 and an MA in Printed Textiles at the Royal College of Art in 2005.
