Inspired by and drawn to forms and patterns found in the natural world, Alex K. Mason references flora, fauna and color in paintings on canvas and paper and translates them to textiles and wallpapers. Living in a digital age has fueled her passion for the tactile and warmth of handmade things because they have a story,
a life and history from the person who creates the art as well as the person who possesses and cares for it.
Mason's work has been exhibited from coast to coast and is in collections around the world including the United State, England, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico and Dubai. Her fabric and textile designs through her company, Ferrick Mason, have been featured in top design publications including Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, NY Times, and Traditional Home. Mason recently designed fabric and wallpaper especially for the Harmon Room in 21c Hotel, Lexington, KY.
