We all know the feeling of seeing a cutesy image over on the old Instagram…we are running late, but hey we scroll anyway, then we click and whoops…..we are on the artist website and looking at all their stuff. That’s what will happen when you get an eye full of Coral and Tusk.
Their website (yes, see we had the same temptation problem and just had to give it the old look over!) tells us about the brand:
Coral & Tusk creates spirited embroidered textiles for the home and gifting. Founded in 2007 by designer Stephanie Housley, Coral & Tusk’s creative process is a special alchemy of storytelling, illustration, and machine embroidery. Designed with an authentic spirit, each Coral & Tusk embroidery begins as an original pencil drawing by Stephanie. Uniquely crafted, with a focus on the natural beauty of linen balanced with the artistry and detail of embroidery, a Coral & Tusk piece is sure to surprise and delight.
So what are you waiting for? Go check them out!
As a freelance artist, designer, lecturer and tutor (how do I narrow down that description?!) I have been contracted by numerous arts organizations to provide Talks, Workshops’ and Masterclasses’ in Textiles, Print Making and Fine Art subjects. These include branches of the Embroiderers’ Guild, Textile Study Groups and The Women’s Institute. Every year I teach at The Knitting and Stitching shows and exhibit with the Artist in Action stand. Currently I am building up to my exhibition at The Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia, London this spring; having also written articles or had work illustrated in Stitch, Inspired, Embroidery, Selvedge, Daphne’s Diary, Prima (online), Cloth Paper Scissors and the Batsford book ‘Be Creative with Textile Art.'
