Designs inspired by mindfulness and the beauty of imperfection for a positive outlook on life and the world in the face of a global pandemic.
I am an author-illustrator of children's picture books, passionate about turning my illustrations into designs that bring clothes and objects to life.
I work with Indian ink and a select watercolour palette on recycled paper.
My designs are inspired by the practice of meditation and the Wabi Sabi philosophy, embracing simplicity, minimalism and imperfection.
I launched my artist shop on January 2020 in the face of the global Covid19 pandemic with two main collections:
- Mindful: aware of the impact a global lock down can have on people's mental health, I gathered a series of designs in this collection inspired by the practice of mindfulness - 50% of the benefit will be donated to the community of Engaged Buddhism Plum Village (founded by Zen Master Thích Nhat Hanh).
- Rainbows: during the first lockdown in the UK in March 2020, rainbows became a symbol to show appreciation for the National Health System workers in the UK. This collection gathers my designs featuring the colours of the rainbow - 50% of the benefit will be donated to the National Health System in the UK.
I support the Artist Support Pledge (artistsupportpledge.com/) and Just a Card (justacard.org) initiatives.
