The Society of Artists Agents (SAA) is delighted to be working in partnership with New Designers 2018.
Artist Partners have a growing strength in their agency in the craft and creative area of embroidery - one of the most successful of these creative embroiderers' is Stewart Easton - who is now becoming a much sought after artist, teaching and taking workshops all over the UK and US about to embark on another very soon.
I couldn’t resist posting this beautiful Christmas image of an Angel doll by our very own Sophie Tilley! The doll is designed and made by Sophie which is just one of her many talents!
Sophie is the artist responsible for the charming illustrations in the highly successful series of books published by Simon and Schuster "Princess Evies Ponies" written by Sarah Kilbride.
Sophie is happiest creating her own characters and animals, and has developed lots of arts and crafts ideas which she promotes on the Etsy site.
She also designs and develops a range of children’s products, notebooks, character dolls, soft toys and decorative stationary items.
With the obvious French influences of her mother, Sophie always brings a little more in French style to her designs and illustrations.
At the moment she is working on a series of books based on her own characters and writing. More to be revealed very soon!

The uniquely talented artist Stewart Easton was asked to produce this lovely image entitled "La Segua", in his digital and hand embroidery style.
The image depicts a Costa Rican folk tale entitled: 'La Segua' which Stewart designed for the Making Moves project in conjunction with Craftspace Ltd.
The project is about working within a Hispanic Group formed of a mix of people from Spain, Peru, Mexico and Costa Rica with the aim to expose children to the Hispanic Culture and the Spanish language .
After meeting with them in Warwick, Stewart was required to make a piece of artwork which had a connection to the group. During the specific workshops that took place there was a great deal of story telling by the the people taking part. Stewart was inspired by a particular folk tale from Costa Rica entitled "La Segua" that was told by one of the group, and he has used that storyline for the grounds of his creative artwork.
This piece was hand drawn, digitally manipulated and printed digitally onto fabric. It was then finished by hand embroidery.
