First post of 2017 – sorry!

Well it’s been a while and theres no excuse for it! So let’s bypass the apologies and get stuck into an amazing artist that I had the pleasure of meeting.

Top Drawer 2017 was held in London Olympia and it’s a trade show that is filled to the brim with beautiful products and talented artists. I had a blast working there and that’s where I met Poppy Ward.

 Poppy is the founder and creative director of P.Westwell. This “studio is dedicated to fine British design and draws inspiration from Asia’s culture and environment”.

I was wandering around the show and was immediately drawn to her stand which was filled to the brim with luxurious gem stone colours and large painted botanical leaves. Her products include fabrics, art pieces, fabric and soon to be wallpaper.

Poppy’s work is solely inspired by her trips to Malaysia when she was younger and the essence of that culture shines through the work perfectly. Take a look at her work here, I think it’s absolutely beautiful! 


Thanks for reading and I promise I’ll see you soon 🙂

I’m finally back! And in a completely different city. I’ve moved away from Aberdeen and started a new job in the website industry all fun and games – here’s hoping it stays that way!

Today I bring you something completely different, something I would probably never have looked twice at – Japanese art. Now I know it’s a massive culture of traditional printing techniques and intricate details to tell stories but I just never looked at it and went WOW! But now I have thanks to good old Patternbank. (Take a look at their stuff here you won’t be disappointed) Continue reading

Anyway enough of my terrible excuses it’s Papergang time! This month was filled with stationery covered in pretty illustrated animals featuring artists Maddy Vian and Gemma Correll.
