We find our artists through direct approaches and by running competitions with British Art & Design schools. Details about each artist are enclosed alongside your orders, but there’s a little information here for you too….

Ele Grafton

Ele is an independent artist and mum of two working from her home studio in rural Somerset. She takes her inspiration from the natural world and describes herself as a "contradiction of aesthetic tastes" as she often juxtaposes her detailed drawings with geometric shapes and patterns.

Florence Whittle

She says she "enjoys simplifying things so that they are sleek but still detailed." She aspires "not just to make beautiful things but to convey messages through her work." She hopes to one day own her own studio.
