Today we introduce you to the lovely Kerri Shipp from Driftwood Interiors.
How did you start your business?
I started my business very slowly in the beginning. My blog had been up and running for a while and I'd built quite a good audience, so I started to introduce a few of my paintings. The response was great and it all went from there.
What inspires you?
I find inspiration everywhere and anywhere, but I find colour and nature are my main triggers. I might see a colour in a photo, or in a flower, and the design usually flows from there. I also find pattern and repetition really inspiring.
What is your favourite piece in your collection?
My favourite piece changes depending on my mood. One day I'll be all about the coral paintings, the next I'll be into neon abstracts. I do have a soft spot for my 'Atomic' abstract though - it's vibrant and happy and a definite 'feel-good' piece.
What has been your favourite recent purchase?
I just bought a new iMac, and I'm only sorry it's taken me so long! Definitely a winner in my book.
What is the one song that will get you on the dance floor?
I love a dance (or two) and 'Bohemian Like You' gets me every time!
What is your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure would have to be interior mags. I have an embarrassing hoard that I just can't bring myself to get rid of. I tell everyone it's all in the name of research, but even I have to admit it's getting a little out of control....
Driftwood Interiors paintings range from abstracts to large scale florals, finely detailed watercolours and richly textured canvases. Kerri loves to create bespoke pieces to to give your home that individual, unique touch. All prints you see here are taken from hand-painted originals, using rich pigment inks and quality watercolour paper to give a depth and texture unique to my pieces. "It's my aim to make custom artwork accessible and affordable - after all, it's those finishing touches that make a house a home." Says Kerri. Of course, she's also happy to discuss custom pieces with you if you're looking for something truly individual.
