Danni Minogue, Takin' Shapes and A Flash Of Colour

Clair and I have just launched a new limited edition homewares and art print range, which is currently being sold into a select number of our stockists and is also now available on line at Curio and Curio.

Basically Danni Minogue popped into our store a few weeks ago, and bought a few of my 'Monkey' prints + cushions, which was amazing. She asked if did the monkey as a stencil,
and this was the start of my journey back to hand cut stencil prints, and our new range of cushions and art prints, 'Takin' Shapes'.

Each design in the new range has been cut by hand. The small dots cushion took about 3 hours to cut, but the response from our stockists to the new range made it worth while. The idea is that by using a paper cut stencil, the designs becomes limited to the life of the stencil, and I have no idea how long they will last. I find as a designer most of the designs give me the most enjoyment at the start and I get bored of printing the same designs over and over again. 

We want to try and introduce a new small range every few months, which will keep things fresh and exciting for both of us and our stockists. I've got over 100 exposed designs on screens so the ability to add elements to existing designs like the Two Ruffians 'Flash Of Colour' art print I did yesterday, opens up a lot of exciting possibilities.
