ItsBalderston

All Amy’s drawings are created freehand with her beloved rapidograph rotring pens. These are then scattered across prints, cards, screen printed tea towels and laser etched onto coasters, boards and spoons.
Most designs hail from a pretty chronic story or sense of humour inspired by her family, pals and nature. Amy’s first range – The Furious Vegetable Army – is now joined by Hostile Houseplants and Garden Birds. Each series includes laser etched boards, spoons, coasters, screen printed tea towels, prints and mugs.

Smaller ranges include the Flower Alphabet, Jolly Leaf Pals and Peeping Veg.

Citrus Bunn

Clemency is a traditional watercolour artist living and working in London with a love of creative characters and great word play.

Her illustrations are more often than not inspired by nature and animals, but with a cheeky intrusion of crude sentiment and excellent punning. She spends much of her time studying, improving her work, cuddling animals and illustrating for a number of exciting and diverse clients.

All of Clemency’s paintings are available as mounted prints and greeting cards as well as coasters and other new products coming soon.

She is passionate about supporting local business. Her cards and prints are printed just eight miles away in Peckham. Quality is extremely important to her, so all her cards are printed on FSC 300gsm board.

Lauren’s Cows

Lauren paints cows! Together with her Mum, Jude, they have been running the business since 2012.

Everything starts with an original acrylic painting, by Lauren, from which they have developed a product range including fine art giclee prints, high quality greetings cards and tableware. Working with some of the best British manufacturers and suppliers enables Lauren’s Cows to offer top quality products that will not disappoint alongside excellent customer service.

We are delighted to be exhibiting for the second time at BCTF2020. We are already stocked by several independent shops and galleries throughout the UK and Europe but are very keen to meet new customers. There’s just something about cows! They have such character and personality that they can’t help but make you smile!
