My story

Elephantine Pocket is a small local textile accessories business created by a Northern Ireland textile illustrator Natalie Gilliland. From a young age i've always been interested with vintage and retro designs, my creating is based on discovering the new the old. Being an inquisitive person, i strive to seek out information and details in objects that are no longer seen as a necessity in our modern age. I take a contemporary approach to my artwork by combining three different elements photography, acetone printing and illustration to form multiple layers in my art work. My work is directed towards an audience who still finds the beauty in the past.
