  1. WIN! Clare Owen Peonies print from Howkapow – Now Closed

    Peonies print by Clare Owen, exclusive to Howkapow. WIN via giveaway on we-are-scout.com.

    Lisa and I are long-time fans of UK-based website Howkapow. Have you stumbled cross it before? Co-directors Rog and Cat How have expertly curated an inspirational line-up of design-led homewares and gifts, featuring many talented British designers and artists.

    We really love Howkapow’s fresh selection of super-affordable art prints, especially this exclusive Peonies print by British illustrator and print-maker, Clare Owen.

    Featuring a bouquet of salmon-pink coloured flowers, with gold-coloured leaves and deep-blue and mint-grey twigs and seed casings, each print comes signed by the artist.

    Cat says,

    “There is a Japanese sensibility to this Peonies print which I really love. When we saw this illustration in Clare’s portfolio, we knew we just needed to have her make it into a print for us. We’re so happy with the results!

    Clare is currently studying for an MA in Printmaking at The University of West England (UWE) in Bristol and took this piece on as a personal project.

    She has expertly printed the artwork with archival inks on 315gsm Matt Fine Art Paper, so there is a real weight to each print.
