Graham started his career at the Brillig Art Centre in Bath back in the 70s. At the time he was influenced by the work of a group of artists known as the Brotherhood of Ruralist painting in the traditional mediums of watercolour and oil paint. He now mostly paints with a mixture of resin and wax, from an old recipe. This gives depth to the image making it almost three-dimensional. His work is reminiscent of Henry Rousseau and influenced by Monet, whose work energised him to play with the effect of light on water. His amazing paintings have been exhibited internationally, showing at the Grand Palais, Paris, Madrid, the Museum of Modern Art in Peking, USA, Japan, and of course London. Graham is a passionate artist who enjoys commission work.
After studying jewellery at the Edinburgh College of Art, Karen Mabon began a Masters at the Royal College of Art in London. Spending 6 years in Edinburgh building her brand, she’s now based in London. Influences include Eric Ravillious, Eduardo Paolozzi, and Piero Fornasetti. Karen’s Natural World style is influenced by Swedish textile design and botanical illustration, featuring muted colours and realistic rendering.
Louise Kirk is a young artist based in Copenhagen where she works from her houseboat studio. Her artistic journey began in her teens decorating vintage handbags, which developed into her own label in 2011. Her decoupage designs are typically characterised by an Art Nouveau style with references to classical fairy tales. The themes take inspiration from a dream of travelling to a special place or capturing a childhood memory. Using a combination of her own drawings and illustrations sampled from antique books, the pieces transform into tales of an imaginative world. This is the first time in 150 years since the original publication of the book that Alice in Wonderland has been interpreted through a collage.
After studying Fashion Design at the Arts Appliqués Duperré School and then Lithography at the Beaux Arts de Paris, Nathalie went on to design for many high-profile brands, including Astier de Villatte, Chanel, Issey Miyake, Bourjois, and Anthropologie. Nathalie is an adventurous artist both in style and method, mixing themes and techniques with an inspiring vibrancy. With a Chinese father and a German mother, her work is a fascinating tapestry of worldwide influences.
Designers Don Carney and John Ross established PATCH NYC based on their mutual appreciation of the hand-made process and vintage inspiration. Both designers spent their childhood creating art, crafting and working with their hands and they continue working in this way with their collections of home décor and fashion accessories. PATCH NYC is known for an attention to detail and a unique color palette combined with a vintage-inspired aesthetic that both designers refer to as “butch granny”.
Playfully named Puddin’head is the creation of Richard McAdam, the Sydney based print maker and illustrator. After graduating from Sydney’s prestigious National Art School, Richard embarked on a mission to make original designs ordinarily found in a gallery accessible to all and relevant in everyday life. Devoted to producing work outside modern manufacturing practices. Instantly recognisable, his work depicts strong, dignified images of animals, insects and people and his sources of inspiration are diverse. Many of his characters are dreamed up from his avid reading of classical books, and have a mythical, surreal quality. Common throughout his work is an underlying humour and charisma.
