I first met Kirsty from Lovely Pigeon several years ago at a design trade show. Of course, I was immediately smitten with her work – graphic, considered, story-telling pieces that combine colour, line and shape to stunning effect. Last week the final edition of her limited run of 50 Cellardyke prints arrived at my humble abode, so I rushed to get it framed over the weekend. Named after the Scottish fishing village where Kirsty lives and works, the print depicts the geometry and reflections of Cellardyke harbour at night.
Although this edition of prints has sold through, don’t fear, as a delightful new line is now available – and each print is equally as stylish. Still with a nautical, summertime feel, the new range of prints are perfect if you’re looking to introduce a hit of graphic colour to a space. My tips would be to line up the trio along a picture shelf for an instant art statement, or pick one favourite and add it to a gallery wall of photographic prints – this will break up the flow and add visual interest to the collection. What do you think of Lovely Pigeon’s, erm, lovely prints?
