English Artist, Magenta is inspired by the ever changing seasons of  nature, and nostalgic charm of yester-year, finding they provide a wealth of inspiration for her art work and surface designs. She lives and work in the South of England, near the leafy New Forest and gorgeous beaches - with her husband and son, plus her dog and cats. The dog and cats are her furry colleagues who "approve" new designs often by sitting on them!

Magenta's philosophy is to find joy in the small things (which are usually the big things!) and to share them through art. She partners with Print on demand companies who produce her art on useful items such as fabric, wallpaper, gifts, clothes, art prints and accessories, meaning that each gift is produced for the person it's intended for- no waste and not mass produced.

Magenta's first design was a simple black cat design which she uploaded to Spoonflower in memory of her beloved black cat. She made it public "in case" someone bought it and excitingly, Sarai the boss of Colette Patterns sewed a super running top and it was featured in their blog! She will always be grateful for Sarai buying her black cat fabric, showing her that it's really cool to sew your own clothes and that there is a place for independent designers! Until that time Magenta was not looking to earn money from art, believing it to be impossible! She had been to art college when young, but worked in education instead and only engaged with art as a therapy during a dark time of injury, proving that every cloud has a silver lining!

Working with other small businesses is a great encouragement to Magenta and she seeks to build up those who sew with her fabrics or upcycle furniture,  decoupaging with her wallpaper or fabric- if that is something that the other business would find beneficial. She understands that not everyone wants competitors to know where they sourced their designs, though! Magenta loves to see the photos of items created with her designs and often posts them on social media or this website  

Magenta loves to engage with creators, boutique owners and customers alike. She loves the freedom to create new designs that are not available widely, to revel in beautiful quality fabrics and collaborate to create something new and exciting.

Magenta creates art and designs that are used all round the world as she partners with companies that print her art onto ready made goods such as  furniture, wallpaper, wall art, clothes, gifts and much more. As a result, she does not need to hold any stock goods are produced "on demand", preventing wastage or loss. In partnering with companies she is able to earn a royalty for every time her art or design is used.  Magenta didn't know when she drew a black cat that she would have over a thousand designs for sale, but now she dreams a lot- because imagination and hard work have changed her life - and she never did return to working in education!

As a small biz lady, Magenta really appreciates your support as she seeks to develop new ideas and forge new ways forwards in the present climate.
