I would like to introduce you to two very talented people an artist, and a furniture designer who have launched brand new products.

Lupe Velazquez owner of Occenca is a product and furniture designer. I found out about this fabulous “Pilot Chair” two days ago that I have to share it with you on my blog.

  • Description/ Pilot Chair
  • Shade Dimensions/ L530mm x D760mm x H700mm
  • Materials/ Plywood, Aluminiun and painted
  • Colours/ Yellow and White

Lupe’s work is cutting-edge, and spans from furniture, lighting, ceramics, kitchen ware, fashion, and wallpaper, you will not find his work just on any high-street. I like the phrase on his website “Today is for Tomorrow”

Karen Davies started off as a self-taught artist and then later on completed a higher national diploma in fine art at Reading College & School of Art and Design (now part of Thames Valley University). Karen’s work is very rich in colour, and I love her subject matter, my favorite piece is “Cows in Dorset” an amazing painting. Karen says

“It’s printed on Hahnemuhle Bamboo paper 290gsm approx A3 size. The giclee is a print of a oil painting (painted on mdf board actually!) which I did in 2009 after a holiday in Beaminster, Dorset. These inquisitive cows were in the field next to our holiday cottage. First 8 prints of an open edition – available for sale on Folksy on the web”
