5 Questions with Sue Gibbins

Get to know Sue Gibbins, designer of Tiny and Wild. Her artistic Whimsy and fluidity really caught our eye and makes such lovely fabrics!

“I’ve lived in a variety of exciting places including Thailand, Honduras and Philippines. I currently live in less tropical England in a pretty little village between Liverpool and Manchester. My surroundings, nature and travel very much inspire the designs I create. My artwork typically mixes graphic shape and hand-drawn line and ink brush detail using bold colour palettes. The vibe is happy, vibrant and oftentimes nostalgic.”

Now in Stores | Tiny and Wild by Sue Gibbins

Tiny and Wild is inspired by shy birds hiding in the vegetation, pollinators zooming around, dainty flowers with the most delicate details, and juicy fruits hidden in the hedgerow. Looking closely at nature is fascinating. As they say, it’s the little things that bring the most joy.
