Clever Frances Moran is a Melbourne-based freelance textile and surface pattern designer who also creates beautiful art prints for little ones and Mums too under the Otobi label.
I love the happy, retro-leaning graphic style of Frances' artwork. How cute are those wormies! Otobi art is printed on beautifully textured 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper using archival inks, which comply with the highest archival standards.
I was also thrilled to hear that you can choose buy Otobi prints already framed by husband and collaborator Simon, with beautiful eco-friendly mouldings from eco CHOICE (timber sourced from managed plantations, carefully grown and controlled using sustainable forestry techniques; finish is water-based and solvent-free).
After hearing about these frames, I can't bear to pick up a cheap frame knowing that it is likely made from rainforest timber. [sad face]. Thanks Otobi for providing a great alternative. [happy face].
Look out for 100% recycled greeting cards and cushions coming your way soon.
