GET TO KNOW

Stephanie Cole

Take one look at Stephanie’s work and you can tell that she has lived in some wild countryside place. Lush green places with flora and fauna, alongside sparse coastal characters depicting everyday activities are what you will find in these delightful surface designs, patterns and illustrations.

I first met Stephanie a few years back while at a small but excellent arty crafty type event in deepest Gloucestershire – and then promptly wondered why I didn’t already know about her work, it seemed so established and professional. At the time I was managing a craft gallery that was in desperate need of newer, fresher, younger work – just like this – so I instantly set about trying to convince Stephanie to become a stockist. Years have passed and her brand has continued to grow, she has temporarily relocated to Finland and has even been voted by Channel 4 as one to watch.
