Hello kindered spirits! How are you doing these days?

During the past months, I've been working on a very special collaboration with the most amazing brand, Pyne&Smith. In this article, I'm going to tell you all about it!



Recently, Pyne&Smith released their beautiful autumn collection. To celebrate it in a unique way, I and Joanna, the designer and amazing woman behind the brand, decided to create a postcard that features one of the dresses from the new collection; one which brings the cosy autumn spirit into the air.


The dress Joanna chose for me to illustrate is Model no.30 in Margate Plaid Linen. I was so happy about this, as I'm in love with its design; it seemed, and indeed, proved to be, such an interesting garment to paint!



I painted the postcard using watercolours and decorated it with a lot of warm & reddish coloured flowers. For the background, I used delicate rice paper, stamped with a lovely floral pattern. I felt like the petals on the paper will connect perfectly with the actual flowers.




I was so happy about the way this postcard came out. This project was a fantastic experience!

Pyne&Smith, thanks for having me! Joanna, thank you for this collaboration, I had a truly amazing time working with you- What you do is truly amazing! 🧡

Hi everyone, hope you have a wonderful week. I would like to tell you about a very special collaboration I have had the honour to be a part of!

A few years back, I came across a beautiful historical shoe brand called Memery. The brand was created by a very lovely talented lady named Mette Emery; it produces the most beautiful (and comfy!) replicas of actual historical shoes.


About a month ago, I and Mette decided to collaborate and create a unique postcard which represents Mette's brand. You can probably imagine my excitement. Bringing this project to life was absolutely thrilling!


At first, we developed some ideas and sketches. We decided to go with an illustration of the Ruth boots- one of Mette's most popular designs (and my forever favourite).

I felt like the materials I choose have to convey the magical aesthetic of the brand, therefore, I decided to go with materials that have vintage qualities; such as watercolours, paper scraps & dried flowers- a decision which I'm very happy about.

I used a colleague-making technique to provide the piece with a special 3D look.


After a lot of work, the illustration was finally ready!


In a short while, this illustration will be printed and turned into postcards which will be added to Memery's lovely packages. So if you are planning to order a pair of Memery, look out for a little token in your boxes!
