Area Environments is a creative studio that curates original work from contemporary artists to produce exclusive wallpapers and large-scale murals. Founded in 2012 out of a shared adoration of fine art, Area’s unique approach to creating wallcoverings continues to be fueled by this passion, alongside our obsession with quality and our desire to challenge the link between art and environment.
Our participating artists are from all over the world, and we consider them our partners. Their wide-ranging artistic voices, stories, and talents have allowed us to build consistently compelling collections, and we are grateful to them for the opportunity. We’re also proud of their individuality; we honor their work by maintaining the integrity of their original pieces, as well as compensating them with a portion of each sale.
In the seven years since Area was founded, we remain just as committed to selecting artwork that inspires the creative process, delivering unparalleled service, and surprising and delighting all who work with us.
Each new collection by Area Environments brings its own thrill and excitement, but there is something extra special about the artists in the Spring 2019 Collection.
The works are stunning – from strong graphical images to light floral inspired pieces to fluid calligraphy based designs – diverse mediums and aesthetics from three new artists with exceptional commonalities.
All three artists are women in their middle age, living out their lives in powerful ways that include their art. Each of them teach or have taught and shared their knowledge and their craft. We at Area believe there is something transformative that happens when you share your knowledge and gifts with the world.

Born in the U.S. and raised in various African countries, Domenica’s work is influenced by her passion for hand woven textiles from around the world, particularly Kuba grass cloth weavings from the Congo, mud cloth from Mali, and Phulkari embroidered tapestries from India.
Kitty’s practice of calligraphy and drawing feeds her fascination for any kind of lines, and the process of tracing. Building, breaking down shapes and lines, setting up emptiness through fullness and connecting lines are her main preoccupation.

Stephanie Tuckwell works in series, often repeating similar forms but in different configurations and scales. Just as her focus of inspiration lies at the edges of the air, land and sea, her creative practice lies in the area between the intentional and incidental.
