Now this concept probably couldn’t arrive at a better time for New Zealanders!

“Best Wishes” is a new type of way to express your care and thoughts for others while spreading original New Zealand art further afield. The creative mastermind and painterly hand behind all this is Jen Sievers, an exciting kiwi abstract artist who has well and truly captured our attention for the last year or so!

In her own words; Jen describes her project:

“Best Wishes is a range of mini artworks, each painted with strong and focused intention.
They’re intended as gifts – so you choose the wish for the person you want to give to – joy, strength, contentment or courage (I’ll do more emotions in time).
Each work is a wish, or a prayer, for the person who receives it. Pass on your good wishes with an artwork that the recipient can live with and soak up on a daily basis.
Each work is a signed and dated original on high quality stock – ready to pop into a frame. For the same price as a flower arrangement. (A5’s for $90 and A3’s for $170)
The perfect gift for your loved one, for a wedding gift, a baby shower, or for someone who just needs a lift. And there are no rules against buying a gift for yourself!”

I JUST LOVE THIS!!!!!!

Like Jen, I share the sentiment that art can affect emotions and sending something original to a friend with this in mind is a beautiful gift.

You can explore the whole launch collection of work here. 
PLUS Jen is launching a giveaway via her social media channels here and here so get involved!

It was almost impossible to edit down my favourites from the store of this Sydney based maker. If you are into delicate, clean but a little quirky jewellery then take some time to skim through her store!

Liz Payne

Incredible embroidery work by Liz Payne // Australia - available online in her Etsy store // as featured on Studio Home - creative talent from the lands down underThe work of Australian artist Liz Payne had me scraping my jaw off the floor when I first stumbled across her feed on instagram. So refreshingly unique in her style and of course her chosen medium of embroidery.
The imagery of her work here well and truly speaks for itself but I would really encourage you to click through and explore her world further! Whats more – I was excited to see that she also offers some limited edition giclee prints of her embroidered creations, allowing more of us the opportunity to own a Liz Payne textural masterpiece!

If what you spot here makes your heart flutter a little then take a second to give your vote to Liz in the Etsy Design Awards which is wrapping up on the 20th!
Go on…..make her day.

MYLARKE – “Tough Love”

Mylarke - "Tough Love". New Zealand and online“Tough Love” is the debut range from Auckland designer; Amy Clarke and her new label Mylarke. But don’t be fooled by the word “debut”! Amy is likely one of NZ’s MOST successful small independant designers with the launch of her brand; Victoria’n’Bird on Etsy way back in 2006. She garnered a huge customer base through her store on that platform and has been fully self employed through that venture from day one! (an exceptional story to me!)

I recently visited the studio she shares with her Rust and Stardust collaborator; Evie Kemp (coming soon in the next issue of Homestyle and later here) and can vouch for these cool and very wearable pieces. Go for an explore and buy some every day clothes from a local. Prices range from $69 to $189 NZ. Nice one.
