Annika Reed

Annika Reed Studio

Annika Reed’s love of pattern began in her childhood while watching her father, an upholsterer, transform furniture with new fabric. Annika later went on to complete an MA at the University of Arts London in Fine Art Print Making. She specializes in woodblock printing and has spent time learning with masters in China, Portugal and America. Her patterns start with a hand drawn sketch which she then carves into wood.

Tamlyn Blasdale-Holmes

Tamlyn Wallpaper

Tamlyn first began dabbling in the arts as a young child.  While recovering from the flu, his dad gave him a Celtic knot work book.  He then taught myself how to reproduce the pattern work within. This laid down the foundations for his love of design. The influence of growing up near Stonehenge in the historic region of Salisbury Plain embedded the Celtic and Saxon techniques further, inspiring him to develop his own more contemporary style. To be offering a sustainable collection of wallpaper is a happy detour in his artistic career.

Simon and Angie Lewin

St. Jude's

St. Jude’s is founded by husband and wife team Simon and Angie Lewin (shown above).  The idea for the company was born in 2005, when a collector of Angie’s prints mentioned that her work might translate well onto printed fabric.  They started out with just two prints and have since become a thriving business which collaborates with a variety of artists to create and print unique fabrics and wallpapers.  Each of the artists who works with St. Jude’s has their own creative style but all have a strong theme of nature and the natural world in their patterns.

Much of her inspiration comes from historical botanical art. It beautifully captures the intricate details, scientific accuracy, and inherent beauty of each plant, which she aims to embody in her own work. Deus ex Gardenia, which means ‘God from the Garden,’ serves as the guiding principle for all her ideas to be surrounded by nature.
