Watercolour, like most forms of art, is a largely solitary activity.
Which means I relish any chance I get to work with other creatives. Having trained as a fashion designer, I’m drawn to working on different types of surfaces – and exciting new projects are made even more rewarding when I have the opportunity to work with someone I admire…
FILIPA DE ABREU
”It was such fun to work with Filipa – she is a hurricane of enthusiasm with impeccable taste.
We wanted to celebrate her love of blue hues, her signature style as well as reference her love of Portuguese design and the welcoming spirit found there so I designed
the Blue and White Collection complete of stationery cards, place cards, menus and notepads.”
VOGUE & FRAME CONDE NAST STORE
”This was a wonderful lock-down surprise. I was approached by Vogue and Frame for a few video collaborations for their Instagram. Together we created these fun Make your own stationery videos with some tips on how to use watercolors and how to decide on a lay out for your design. The stationery that came out is one of my absolute favourite!”
”I also had a chance to tap in my creative inner child again, and was able to playfully guide a video for children with so many different and fun colouring techniques for their Vogue June 2020 issue!”
”Racil’s birthday always falls during Paris Fashion week. So we made sure that her dinner party menu was as glamorous and chic as the occasion called for. Set at Caviar Kaspia in the heart of Paris, I obviously had to use their signature turquoise color of their table cloths, as the signature background colour of the menu. The menu is ’silently’ brought to you by the different hands holding key foods, and of course wearing Racil’s original jacket designs!”
”To celebrate the beginning of the year of the Pig in China, Pomellato visualized a photoshoot of their most fun pieces with my watercolors of many a piggy as their background. The result: a fresh and pink campaign!”
MASSIMO ALBA & CLEMENTINA SKETCHBOOK
for African Parks
”A collaboration born from a shared love for Africa and wildlife. I drew these iconic and majestic creatures on colored paper and with charcoals. We applied them on Massimo’s signature handkerchiefs, and this beautiful collaboration that raised money for wildlife was born. 10% of sales went to African Parks.”
”I really love Alice Naylor-Leyland’s table set designs, so I reached out highlighting the clear-as-day synergy in our aesthetics. We then created the cutest place cards for her Easter table set.”
”Danielle has been a loyal supporter since I started my watercolors adventure, and this brought us to many a project between me and her lovely luxury resort wear brand. One of my favorite being this charming work & personal stationery design we created to convey the aesthetic of her brand, while maintaining a personal and sweet touch.”
”Of course we couldn’t miss playing around with the fashion element of her brand, and so we recreated some of the looks from her collections in watercolours to add an extra hand-painted spin to her branding.”
