Paola, owner of Meanmagenta Photography, is a nature photographer and a textile designer, which she acknowledges as an unusual combination but says that she is equally passionate about photography and design.
Paola set up Meanmagenta Photography in January 2019. Photography is her main medium to be creative: using her camera like a notebook she uses it daily to document what she considers worth preserving and also to capture ideas, patterns and unique situations.
Her beautiful textile designs are often inspired by photographs, especially the floral range she is working on to create what will be the 2020 home accessories and textile collections.
Best of all, Paola says, ‘I collaborate with UK digital printers who use ethically sourced textiles, use manufacturing methods with a low impact on the environment and are keen to use packaging that can be recycled.’
