This month’s featured print “Little Swimmers” was created by Angela Mckay of Ohkii Studio, a surface pattern designer and illustrator based in Brooklyn, New York. Originally hailing from the sunny shores of Australia and the humid tropics of Thailand, she draws her inspiration from the natural world, overseas travel adventures, folk tales and old murder mystery novels. Her work is defined by its handmade qualities; all pieces are drawn and painted by hand before being screen or digitally printed. Above all, she enjoys creating things that can make you smile.
