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.
Stephanie’s range is broad but everything has her signature aesthetic to them – screen printed textile wares, paper goods – my current favorite is the wooden hare necklace. I’m always interested to see what Stephanie has been up to, and where she’ll go next as there is always something exciting up her sleeve. Keep up to date with new products and events on” Stephanie’s blog.
I shall leave you with some of my favourite postcard paintings from her Postcard A Day series….
Im really loving the animals today – sheesh! Be sure to visit the shop I dare you not to be tempted by something in there!
Until next time!
