Inspiration: Artist Stina Persson

I'm loving the work of swedish illustrator Stina Persson at the moment. Her beautiful watercolour paintings have a mix of elegance and edgyness to them, and she uses a stunning array of colours. I love the mix of sketchy drawings and fluid watercolour blending with splashes, drips, and the occassional pattern thrown in. I wish I lived in NY right now so that I could go to her upcoming exhibition, Perfectly Flawed.

Here are some of my favourite designs, which are inspiring me this week.

Design on Paperchase notebook

I was thrilled to come across one of my designs on a notebook in Paperchase last week, and I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of another design that is due to be on a wrap. I've always loved Paperchase's colourful and quirky designs, and the experience was made all the better when the shop assistant serving me commented on how much she loved this design- she was rather surprised when I told her it was one of mine!
