Behind The Art

The Story 

 

After many years in accessories and handbag design, I picked up a paintbrush and set to work during the first lockdown.

My first piece was the zebra in a headdress with coloured feathers, ( hence my logo being a zebra ) I then bought some foils and applied to create a 3D affect on the crown. I posted it on my insta page and sent a few as gifts to lovely bloggers and they loved them and posted on their grids, I had requests for prints from all over the UK and US and even Hong Kong ! So I partnered with a small local Giclee print company and so this is how Animl By Design began.

 A massive believer of how art and creativity opens the mind and can not only help create a positive mindset but also aid creative thinking in other forms of your daily life. I have started uploading tutorial videos of how to get going on simple pieces if you want to have a go. 

I am now creating repeat prints using my previous textile design background, which will feature on interior products ! exciting
