I first met Ella and Martin a couple of years ago when we were all freelancing together at a creative studio in central London. They are both incredibly talented and I just love their sense of style. Ella is an amazing artist, illustrator and designer, drawing the most beautifully detailed sketches of native birds and regularly exhibits her fine art work in and around London. You can read her creative musings on her blog and follow her on facebook. Ella also has an online shop at Folksy, where you can purchase some of her lovely cards and notebooks screen printed with designs from her original sketches.
Martin is equally artistic and is a writer, musician and journalist. Each week he posts a ’100-word’ entry on his blog called ‘Possible Fictions‘. As a singer and musician he regularly performs on the London Folk circuit and has his own 7″ LP out which is available through iTunes. (cover illustrated by Ella).
A few weeks ago they moved out of the big smoke and back to a gorgeous little village just a stones throw from where they first met at college. Ella finally gets her own studio space and Martin also gets to work from home. With such idyllic surroundings, it definitely sounds like the perfect lifestyle and I couldn’t be more happier for them if not a teeny tiny bit envious. Fanni x
