Isabel Fletcher is a London based mixed media artist whose work develops out of an expanded approach to textiles. Working with a broad range of found material offcuts, Isabel’s practice takes inspiration from often overlooked and undervalued details in life by working through the chaos of waste. Isabel aims to contradict the perceptions and perceived value of the disregarded in order to encourage a closer observation and appreciation of the world around us. She employs varied processes in working with offcuts, which perform both surface-based and structural interventions, constantly developing and expanding these to suit the materials worked with. 

Isabel has collaborated with brands such as Kvadrat, TOAST and Worm London, using textile offcuts as the starting point for further design. She has presented work in both solo and group exhibitions, including the Design Museum’s ‘Waste Age’ (2021) and ‘Eternally Yours’ at Somerset House (2022).
