Hello, my friends! We're in a deep freeze right now, so let's look at some warm and colourful creativity, shall we?
Atabey Sanchez-Haiman: "I decided that I wanted to create a studio of my own where people could not only buy my work, but also feel that they were entering one of my bright and happy illustrations. I feel that the media nowadays focuses too much on sadness and misery and my art is my small contribution towards promoting a positive outlook instead. When people come into my studio they automatically smile and a smile can go a long way to making a difference. I realize how powerful art can be in eliciting emotions and therefore my artistic philosophy is to make art that makes you smile. I make art as an antidote to unhappiness."

Studio Mola Mola by Inge Bruggen

My favourite 2016 project. I designed prints and products around sharks and rays to help raise awareness for the need to protect declining shark populations.

Surface Pattern Design
by Kevin Brackley

I enjoy creating fresh, modern designs with an organic, geometric feel, and a nod to the Scandinavian design aesthetic.

Detroit Textiles

I design surface pattern designs and coordinates for interiors, fashion, quilt and other markets. I create fine art to be used in my patterns.
