Lovely Lisa Congdon Art!

Although her name is familiar to me, I’ve never actually taken a good look at this talented girl’s portfolio. The American artist and illustrator has such a huge array of bright and cheery drawings paintings collages and patterns to pour over. Her work is so uplifting, here are some of my favourites….

Macaroons Wallpaper (the result)

So you may remember I posted a few months ago about a project where I was creating a bespoke wallpaper for an artisan macaroon bakery in Berlin. Well here it is…..

Inspired by 1950s pattern, pastel colours and Parisian treats I hand drew, digitally finished and printed this unique design onto a lovely pearlescent ground paper to reflect the light and add a touch of luxury.

The bakery interior has a lovely relaxed and inviting appeal, and our wallpaper adds a little something unique and special, used as a backdrop for the counter.

Visit Makroenchen Manufaktur here for more info on their Macaroons.We are now looking for similar commercial projects to work on so if you have an idea you would like to discuss, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can call Kate on 07446004449 or email studio@kateusher.co.uk.

In Love With Ruben!

I just had to share with you all my new found love, the work of an artist I’ve been following for some time, Ruben Ireland.
I first his discovered his surreal and somewhat disturbing paintings over at Society6 ( where you can find a wealth of original, affordable art in the form of handy household items) whilst in search of a more “interesting” ipad cover than what was on offer in Currys, and have been hooked ever since.

This is surrealism, digital collage and painting at its finest. I only hope I have the pleasure of owning one before the year is out (take heed husband!) and it would have to be a really BIG print, because the quality and detail of his work is so awe inspiring it needs to be noticed! (An iphone cover would not suffice, but I wouldn’t turn it down!) My bedroom walls are crying out for Ruben Ireland!
