Illustrator Arati Devasher creates colourful artwork inspired by a deep love of nature and dogs. Both are amply represented in her work.

Arati works from her home studio in Ruislip. Her illustrations also feature on prints, cards, mugs, teatowels and other homewares all sustainably made in the UK. Commissions are welcome.

Mixed Media, Textile

Adele Cloony is a London based artist who trained in both visual and internal martial arts. Embodying energy and spirit through the brush onto paper, she mindfully combines both considered and spontaneous free flowing gestural marks to express her inner dialogue. She sees many parallels with her painting and Tai Chi practice, one of them being that: “They are both forms of moving meditation. Being in the present moment, by quieting the mind, with no mind contemplating emptiness, connecting mind and body, becoming one with all things – no separateness but all interconnected.” Predominantly using traditional oversized Chinese brushes, incorporating essences of ancient philosophies, together with contemporary mediums, connecting mind, body and breath to create her artwork.

I design and hand screen print onto linen and cotton fabrics for use in embroidery and sewing projects. I practice slow stitching and appreciate the benefits this meditative process brings. I encourage other makers to add their own personality to my fabric through stitch, appliqué and quilting in order to make their own useable textile treasures for their home.

Using rich colours my simplistic designs have a retro feel to them. I take inspiration from the 1920s – 50s, architecture and urban nature. I hand draw all my designs and enjoy drawing with thread as part of the design process. I design and produce a range of home accessories such as purses, eye pillows and tea towels, these are beautiful additions to the home, designed to be used freely while adding a little luxury to everyday life.

Passing traditional skills onto others is vital to keep skills alive for future generations. I run screen printing and sewing workshops and encourage others to turn to these hobbies as a way of connecting with the moment and spending some time away from fast pace of modern life.

You can see more of my work on my Harrow Open Studios page here and my fabrics and accessories can be bought online, head to my website to learn more.
