There is still time left to get the very first Wild & Kind subscription box. Here are the lovely contributors to this month’s Wild & Kind themed box. In the meantime here is some information about the artists who have contributed their designs this month.
Katy is a Glasgow-based independent textile designer, knitter & maker, a multi-disciplinary creative with a love for graphic patterns and bold colour. Katy’s work focuses on the exploration of colour theory within textiles, taking inspiration from the Modernist movement, experimenting with form, abstracting shapes and using colour theory as a subject matter to create contrasting and vibrant, bold and playful prints. Environmental impact is carefully considered in Katy’s design process, with eco-friendly printing processes & recycled/biodegradable paper and packaging used where possible.
Katy has designed the print for us this month find more examples of her work and what to expect in the box on her instagram @ktmccrossan or her website www.ktmcrossan.com
Gillian Brown is a self taught painter and illustrator from Glasgow. With a background in textile design, she enjoys playful and expressive use of colour and line art. Gillian creates portraits in acrylic and watercolour paint, as well as comic strips about her own struggles with mental health and her coping mechanisms. She is inspired by science fiction, the animal kingdom and her inner child.
Erin is the designer and founder of fashion brand Fictional Character. Her work is focussed on creating clothes with interesting fabrics, textures and illustrated prints to craft unique stand out statements.
