Cornelia O'Donovan

Happy Monday Morning!

I thought we'd start the week with the jaw-droppingly beautiful work of London-based artist Cornelia O'Donovan (just look at that owl!!!)

Colour, paper, print and soft sculptures - parfait !

Cornelia is one of the 24 artists, designers and makers invited to create a square piece of textile work in red and white for Selvedge's first advent calendar. She came up with this wonderful, vibrant handprinted textile rabbit.

A poetic mix from technique and narrative, artist Geoff Grandfield describes Cornelia's work as "Silent narratives. The world as a stage. Just having fun with paper, pens, glue and scissors, the flow of images of character faces and figures, animals birds, flowers and abstract patterns".

Cornelia has recently opened a Bigcartel shop

where you can buy beauties such as this limited edition relief printed christmas angel pack,

and handmade hanging horse crafted from vintage recycled 100% cotton fabric.

If you'd like to find out more about Cornelia's work, visit her on Flickr and new website (when it's up and running)
