With Easter just around the corner, we were delighted to catch up with printmaker and designer Molly Mahon. Working from her home studio, an idyllic cottage in East Sussex, Molly gets inspired out in nature immersed in the colours of Spring.
We chatted about her design influences, and her top picks from the Paint Library London Archive Colours...
Hi Molly, it’s a pleasure to have you. Could you pick your two favourite Archive Colours and explain why you like them?
Thanks for having me. First off, it has to be Jaipur Pink - of course! So much of my inspiration comes from spending time in India, so this strong colour immediately transports me to Jaipur City, a place I love a little bit more every time I go.
Moxa just does something for me right now too. Its rich, sophisticated and reminds me of all those fresh buds we are getting right now as we delve deep into Spring.
What is your earliest memory of colour?
Hmm.. I am very bad at putting my memories in chronological order, I have so many. Perhaps the marbling colours balancing on water as my mother created beautiful marbled papers
I also remember Spring flowers all around our wonderful garden that my Dad kept so well. Especially at Easter when we were hunting for eggs and would look under Primrose petals, in cracks of trees, behind daffodils.
What colour is your favourite possession?
My favourite possession is a pencil box that my Grandmother painted me with my name on. It is mostly blue, but with lots of other colours too!
Can you define your aesthetic style in three words?
Joyful, colourful and comfortable
