NEWS: BOOM licensing

 I am now represented by UK based BOOM licensing. 

Boom represents some of my favourite designers including Lotta Jansdotter*, Elizabeth Olwen, Thomas Paul, Skinny LaMinx and Florence Broadhurst. I'm very happy to be in their company. 

Boom and I have already begun to explore collaborations for bedding, stationary, beauty products, wallpaper + home decor so I hope to have some new products to share with you in the next year. (!)

 Celebration dinner with my sweet Myles at FRANK at the AGO last night.

*Lotta will always be so special to me as it's she who inspired me to move into surface design back in 2006. She was a wonderful teacher and will always be a mentor to me.

My Big lemon print is now available as a framed giclee print through One's King's Lane.
 It's Big!

18" x 22" and comes in a white frame. 
I think it'd look really cute in a kitchen.
