Quiet Thunder came about last year during a time when life seemed to be one dark challenge after another. As an artist my default mode was to create, to try and make sense of what was going on around me. I wanted to create a range of goods with a percentage of sales going to the UK Mental health charity MIND.
I was working on a series of artworks for an exhibition in Stockholm and they seemed to be the perfect base for tee-shirt designs. I wanted them to be organic and use environmentally friendly inks. Most of the tee shirts are organic and I am working on making the whole clothing range organic or from re-cycled materials.
Aside from Quiet Thunder I work as Business Development Manager in a design studio and I teach art at a local pupil referral unit, to children from 6 - 16.
Quiet Thunder looks at the dark and the light - we have it in all of us.
The Quiet range is mainly white t-shirts with images and words that are meditative and reflective. The thunder range will be darker and edgier.
I hope that you enjoy and feel inspired.
