See all my Chinoiserie designs.
Chinoiserie (from 'chinois' - the French for Chinese), as a style was inspired by art and design from China and other Asian countries. Characteristics include asymmetry, playful contrasts of scale, fanciful imagery and fantastic landscapes: filled with exotic buildings such as pagodas and pavilions; birds, dragons, and people in Chinese clothing. The Victoria and Albert Museum has some nice examples. The scenes in my design were inspired by a much-loved illustration - very much in the Chinoiserie style - by A. Groves-Raines in my childhood book of Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales (1st published 1950).

Very well done Su!! I love alternation of graphic symbols and realistic scenes.
Stunning design Su! I love the combination of intricate scenery with the bold geometric pattern!
Thanks for your kind words Pat, much appreciated!
Love the intricate detail Su!
Thanks so much Cal and Sheila for your lovely comments (and the luck, Cal, I can just see it in wrought iron!)
Beautiful work Su! Great coordinates too!
Su such a beautiful and intricate design! I too love this kind of work and also was inspired by story book illustrations in my childhood. Still have some of those books. The lattice style of this design has got me envisioning it not only in fabric but in wrought iron. Would look so beautiful in my entranceway.... ;* ) Wishing you luck in the contest!
Thanks very much Lisa for your nice comment and helpful feedback!
Nice design, Su! I love how you integrated the metalwork patterns of the gate.

Gorgeous Su! The fretwork holds the scenes together so well. Beautiful work.
Thanks very very much Francesca, Rhonda, Melanie and Sylvie for your lovely comments and great feedback - especially re the collection, Francesca - it is just so helpful to me to hear what you see and think works (I'm hearing balance, graphics + drawings, ambiance) and all you say is very much appreciated!

Your lovely design has a wonderful Oriental ambiance, Su!
