The Art of the Scarf

Fashion brand Talbots join forces with Jessica Durrant and Karen Mabon to create two unique scarves to raise support in the fight against breast cancer.

Talbots commissioned three internationally renowned female artists including our very own Jessica Durrant anbd Karen Mabon to interpret the courage, strength and determination of women. The result is their 3rd annual limited-edition collection of one-of-a-kind scarves which are available to purchase HERE

Jessica and Karen both shared with Talbots the inspiration behind their scarves:

Jessica, "I wanted to create a light, ethereal work of art, and I use flowers and butterflies in my artwork as symbols of endless change and a quiet strength."

Karen, "As females we are strongest when we lift each other up. I wanted the scarf to celebrate the importance of building networks and helping other women"

Illustrator Ollie Maxwell and animator Gary Mayescollaborate to craft springtime magic and bring a beautiful bottle of Nyetimber Classic Cuvee to life.

Nyetimber, makers of world-renowned English sparkling wines, commissioned Ollie Maxwell to create this exquisite watercolour illustration of springtime flora and insects surrounding a bottle of Nyetimber Classic Cuvee.
They commissioned Gary Mayes to transform Ollie’s elegant work into a subtly-animated springtime scene with blooming flowers, growing plants and fluttering, buzzing insects, all attracted to the centre-stage fine wine.

All Hail The Healthcare Heroes

Stella Magazine commission Ruth Palmer to create their first ever illustrated cover.

Ruth Palmer's traditional style of illustrating caught the eye of the Art Director at Stella Magazine who commissioned her to illustrate their latest magazine cover, having never used illustration before! The brief was to base the artwork on the original poster recruiting nurses in 1917, paying tribute to 100 years of frontline medics.
