ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Emily Blincoe is a photographer born and raised in Austin, Texas. She finds inspiration in faces, new places, shapes, colors, light, and quiet little moments. Most days you can find her wandering in the tall grass somewhere between Austin and Nashville with her dogs Eleanor and Gus Gus.
Fiona Hewitt’s retro style draws on a variety of sources, including propaganda, vintage ephemera and most recently the iconography of the Indian sub continent and the theme of the modern goddess. Travel has been a major inspiration throughout her work, most specifically the four years she spent living in Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai where she was first introduced to the wonders of lantern festivals, flea markets, 1960’s toys and communist China. These passions and obsessions have inspired some of her best known work; the Asian inspired beauty brand Miso Pretty (for Blue Q) and the 1950’s, Asian, kitsch creations she made for her own company Wu & Wu. Fiona lives and works in Brighton in the UK.
Helen Dardik is a professional illustrator and a surface pattern designer based in Canada. Vibrant, folksy, playful toomuchery is a perfect way to describe her style. Born by the Black Sea, Helen lived in Siberia for a time and then moved to Israel, where she studied art and design. In the early nineties she relocated to Canada, where she got a graphic design degree and found work as a designer and illustrator. Helen mainly works in vector using the magic of imagination combined with the magic of Adobe illustrator... but, often, watercolor, oil, gouache, embroidery and vinyl find their way into her repertoire. Finding inspiration in her childhood, her 3 girls, nature, vintage books and midcentury design, Helen is determined to make her life into the most creative experience.
