Elk in the Wood is very excited to be collaborating with Melbourne-based abstract expressionist and contemporary landscape artist, Katie McKinnon. Katie creates works bursting with positive messaging, energy and movement, and high-fidelity colour. Her paintings reference animals as hero, graphic and geometric elements, street art, the adored Australian beaches of her childhood, the wild alpine environs of Switzerland, the beauty of the â€˜everydayâ€™ and the thrill of the unexpected. Katieâ€™s vibrant, celebratory and optimistic paintings reflect her strong belief that the art hanging in the spaces where you live and work should make you happy. www.katiemckinnon.com.au
Our collaboration with the very talented Kimmy Hogan, founder of White With Three has seen her graphic illustrations coming to life in fabric form... "Creating fun, happy artworks was such a creative release for me. My style is a mix of illustrative lines and clean digital shapes with an aim to bring a breath of fresh air into people's homes. It's a dream and an honour to have my art now gracing the cushions of fantastic label Elk in the Wood. Sarah and Emma are expert curators with exceptional taste and have translated my designs from print to textile beautifully. Their attention to detail and emphasis on quality makes for cushion perfection! I am so excited about the design selection that Elk in the Wood has made that will have these cushions nesting everywhere in the home from couch to nursery to bedroom. www.kimmyhogan.com.au
HELLO, WE ARE: Sister duo- Sarah and Emma- are self-confessed design junkies with life long dreams of creating a project that would satisfy their creative prowess. The concept spanned continents for many years as they both travelled the world, exploring all things bold and beautiful. One day when the sisters were living in Dublin they journeyed down a local market street, chatting and dreaming as usual when they realized they also wanted to make and sell some wares...the idea ‘Cushi-Cushi’ was born. They envisioned a little project where they would source beautiful fabrics from Paris and set about making cushions in all shapes and sizes. Emma travelled to Paris- a city where they separately spent their 19th year (a little family tradition they say) and bought reels of ribbon, french lace and vintage linens ready to make their dream a reality. But this box of the finest fabrics was lost and as each sister embarked on new adventures in Londontown not long after, Cushi-Cushi remained a dormant thought. Until now- as a decade has passed with an Architectural Degree, a IT expert, a wedding, two babies, a vintage Food Truck called Frankie, Elk in the Woods cushion boutique, more world travels and a magazine in the works- the sisters’ have combined their love of craft, design and home wares into ‘Elk in the Woods- Stockholm | Melbourne’ an online boutique for all their designer loves from Australia and Scandinavia; of where one sister each resides. They know that each country holds a charm to the workings of craftsmanship in their unique manner and are providing a carefully curated platform for designer goods from each side of the ocean. Welcome to Elk in the Woods...from Melbourne to Stockholm.
