And I love that. – x dana



Recently, I had the huge pleasure of working with the dynamic duo Edwina and Katrina Brennan of .

Not only did they come to the studio bearing gifts, which is never taken for granted, especially if they’re baked goods, but Edwina also bought me a beautiful book of serigraphs by , who was someone whose work I’d not come across before. Her screenprinted work was instantly striking to me and the bold graphic aesthetic, with sweeps of vibrant colour and handwritten type, packed a punch in it’s modern simplicity.
