Nicole from Etsy Love just wrote to me about Ellie Curtis, a London designer with a brand new etsy shop where she sells some pretty amazing pillows and prints based on her whimsical illustrations (love her unexpected color combinations like violet with orange). Ellie takes her drawings and creates screen prints onto paper and fabric with crisp modern results. Her inspiration? “I often like wandering around places like the British Museum, the V&A, or the Pitt Rivers in Oxford to soak in the many different objects and their owner?s associated thoughts, worries, beliefs,” she says.
In the past, Ellie created brooches that I found pretty enough to post so I have to share them to you today. I’m not sure if she plans to make them again or carry these in her etsy store, but I wish she would at least consider it. I’d love to pin them to throw pillows, especially the butterfly.
Great unique work, it’s really refreshing. Thank you Nicole for the tip!
