Unknown to us at the time, this journey first started in 2018 when we visited the Cycladic island of Mykonos, (a tiny slice of heaven in the Aegean sea)
But it wasn't the iconic blue & red accents of colour against white-washed architecture that stole our hearts -- It was the island wide use of seagrass baskets, rattan furniture, textured linens & ceramics in various shades of beige. It was the independent boutiques & cafes that lined narrow cobbled streets, all decorated in this beautifully rustic, yet somehow minimal way with everything made out of raw & natural materials. But more than that it was the way of life; evenings spent dining by candlelight and slow mornings spent sipping coffee looking out to the sea. It was living intentionally & those small things that stayed with us when we returned home. It set the tone for the way we spent our weekends & decorated our house and it certainly paved the way for how we wanted to balance our lifestyle & work.
About the Art
Our collection of art is a blend of in-house mixed media, illustration and carefully curated, licensed design pieces by other talented sources that we harmonise into final artwork. The work being an infusion of the past & present takes modern elements and combines them with classic pieces, giving fresh new life to interesting archived art.
We love to experiment with earthy tones & textures, illustration and different styles of typography. We have a range of prints in the style of modern bohemian, neoclassicism, astrology & the occult and contemporary art. Our work celebrates women, slow intentional living & various pastimes such as reading, travel and enjoying nature.
Printing takes place on site at our Norfolk based home studio. We use only the best quality fine-art papers, inks & techniques to provide heirloom pieces for you to enjoy for many years to come.
All prints are made to order, printed using our 24" Epson SureColor P7000 and then trimmed to size before being carefully wrapped in tissue paper and then consciously packaged into biodegradable cellophane bags (because we love our planet!). Larger prints are wrapped and placed into 50mm wide recyclable postal tubes. The white end caps are also recyclable!
All orders are shipped from the UK via the Royal Mail. Full shipping details can be found here.
Previously working long hours as a brand stylist, and with a family to raise & a chronic illness to be mindful of, I was determined to find that perfect work/life balance. After falling in-love with the slower paced ways of life in Mykonos, I felt it was time to make the change and with my experience in branding & having worked with printed media before, I decided to open an online print shop. With the help of my husband, Ash & my mum, Lorraine, I've been able to enjoy expressing my creativity at work and take that much needed step back in order to enjoy a balanced lifestyle intentionally created by me. Aside from my work, I also enjoy long dog walks in the countryside, interior decor, reading & shopping in antique bookshops but most importantly, spending time with my children & family.
Printing takes places from our townhouse in the village of South Wootton on the west Norfolk coast of England
