Featured in Computer Arts Projects November 2011

Happy weekend everyone! The brand new Computer Arts Projects is out (November 2011 issue) and I'm very proud to have my interview included in a fantastic article : " Successful Print Selling". It means the world to me to be recognised by my fellow printmakers/designers/makers.

I've always been a fan of the magazine. It really helps designers to find their feet out there by giving them business and creative advice as well as loads of inspiration and tutorials. I'm in great company with this article, sharing the pages with Andy Council, Crayon Fire and James Brown.

a week of interviews

August started off great for Mengsel, with two interviews on two fantastic blogs. If you've ever wondered what makes this head of mine tick, this is the best way to find out. The first interview was for my favourite South African interior magazine VISI's blog. You can read the VISI interview HERE.


The second interview was for my wonderful UK stockist, Heal's. The iconic store's blog has a section called Heal's Reveals which has featured amazing designers including Lisa Stickley, Donna Wilson and Rob Ryan . You can view the Heal's interview HERE.

Garden and Home interview in December 2010 edition

Garden and Home South Africa interviewed me a while ago and now the article about Mengsel, called "Adding To The Mix" is on the "Pat on the Back" section in the December 2010 issue. I can't tell you how amazing it feels to be recognised by such a prestigious South African publication like Garden and Home.

A wonderful end to a very exciting year for me!

Moka Express silkscreen print featured in Danish interiors magazine BoligLIV

So happy that Mengsel's Moka Express silkscreen print has been featured in the October issue of beautiful Danish interiors magazine BoligLIV. As you all know, I'm a big admirer of Scandinavian style and design and I'm just honoured to be mentioned. BoligLIV is not available in the UK, so thank you Kristina for sending me a copy from Copenhagen.

Every sillkscreen print from Mengsel is unique, as it is printed by hand by myself in the studio. Available in a variety of colours in The Mengsel Shop and my Etsy shop.




Folksy Sampler, Christmas 2009

I got a really nice surprise when I returned from my holiday. My Eero Aarnio Ponies tea towel design was featured on the middle page of the Folksy Sampler for Christmas 2009 and a copy of the newspaper was on my doorstep when I arrived. The layout of the newspaper is below. My design on the inside page can be used as wrapping paper for Christmas pressies. Really cute! Head over to Folksy for some designer goodies.
