I have this gorgeous owl tote bag from Udessi that is always receiving compliments. Said owl was the winning design (as voted by Udessi customers and blog readers) by Sydney-based illustrator and artist Nikki Catalano.
As you can see, Nikki is a special talent. Her Japanese-influenced upbringing have inspired both her love of pattern and her respect for 'white space'. On Nikki's website you can find art prints, card packs and two great books ("Mitsu" which she illustrated with her sister the author and a beautiful colouring-in book). Nikki's work is another example of art that would suit a child's space just as beautifully as an adult part of the house/office/commercial space. I particularly like her move towards integrating fabric into her works. Just beautiful.
