I've been thinking about all the wonderful shops who sell my work and i'd like for them to get some recognition, so i'm starting my very own 'Friday Friends' where i'll be sharing all my lovely stockists with you.
Telling you about them is my small way of thanking them for all of their support, because really without them and their constant faith in me and my work I wouldn't be able to make a living from what I love doing.
And…. as if that wasn't enough i'm also going to be running a competition for these Friday posts so you better keep reading, it'll be worth it!
My first shout out goes to Nannie Innez in Austin, Texas. I've always wanted to go to Austin - ever since I first laid eyes on a sticker which pleaded with me to 'Keep Austin Weird'
Nannie Innez is the stunning creation of Deeyn Rhodes & Lonzo Jackson.
The very lovely Deeyn came to visit me a while ago to interview me about my work.
I was amazed at how at ease she made me feel - i'm naturally quite shy and a bit awkward around people I don't know but I really opened up to Deeyn and as she quizzed me about my work I found myself learning and realising things i'd never considered before.
You can read my interview on their beautiful website here
Deeyn & Lonzo set out to create 'a warm & welcoming retail environment' I believe their success is evident from the images on their website, I can't imagine what it must be like to witness it first hand (i've started saving up already)
I love the colours they've chosen and how they've married those with geometric shapes - the design of the store really seems to reflect the carefully selected objects within it, especially the magnificent Donna Wilson pouffes & cushions.
I think in short Deeyn & Lonzo have created a space which reflects their personalities - warm, welcoming and beaming with brightness. Thanks to you both for letting me be a part of what you've forged.
And now for the competition part!!
I'll be giving away a free print to the first person to visit Nannie Innez and have their photo taken in the store - you'll find it at
