The 2016 Lucienne Day Award, for innovative interior textiles, goes to Bath Spa University graduate Charlotte Street.

Her stunning trompe-l’œil textile imagery mimics peeling frescos, paper and paint textures and incorporates close observation of nature. Like Lucienne Day she is influenced by natural plant forms.

Lucienne was the Society’s first Honorary President, a position she held from 1992-2002.
