MOOD BOARD: DALMATIAN

Spotted: dalmatian is trending, and we are drooling about it. From Crissy Teigan on vacay in Italy to Kansas City’s favorite canine, Doug the Great Dane at Bar K, everyone is sporting these spots. After all, chic is the new neutral.

We partnered with @modernhandcraft for a quilt kit giveaway (sorry, a lucky winner has already won!) for her Pivot quilt pattern made with Abstract Collage!! We are literally FREAKING OUT at how much we are obsessed with this quilt!!! We're beyond lucky to have @modernhandcraft sewing with our designs!

The entire collection comes in two very different color ways!! We've been showing you lots of the bright version, but we also put together a lighter, less bold color option! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Announcing...Field Trip 2019

Ampersand Design Studio

IGbutton1.jpg

Spring is nearly here and we are so happy to announce our next Field Trip show to you!  

You may have heard that Surtex has now moved to February, but we will still be holding our show in May, during NYCxDesign week along with ICFF, Sight Unseen, Blueprint and a few other design shows. We have our fingers crossed you will be able to join us!

This year’s Field Trip will be held on Monday May 20, from 1-8pm in New York. This is our fourth annual show, and we are thrilled about the momentum that’s been building in the past few years. We have an incredible roster of talent again — some returning faces and some fresh artists that we are super excited about! Our joint virtual studio space is brimming over with creativity and colour from all the artists.

This year, we are so happy to introduce not one, not two but three new artists to our Field Trip family.

CARRIE SHRYOCK

Carrie grew up on a farm in central Missouri. There she spent her childhood picking bouquets of wildflowers and exploring the wide open prairie under a big cloud-filled sky. She currently lives in Columbia, Missouri, but you can feel her strong connection to the vast landscapes and wilderness in her art and illustration. Today her favorite shade of blue is a bright vibrant blue sky on an early spring day. It's such a welcome sight after a long gray winter.

JESSICA NIELSEN

Our second artist is Dutch illustrator Jessica Nielsen who is currently residing in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Jessica has an eye for creating bright, bold, yet simple designs with a real graphic elegance. She is inspired by shapes and structures in nature and loves all shades of green.

LILLIAN FARAG

Lillian, a New York dweller, is a free spirited artist who creates expressive and colourful art with her very own twist of playfulness. “I would say I get a lot of inspiration from nature and colour play,” she says, adding that her current favourite colour is yellow.

Our core crew of returning artists include :
