Micke Lindebergh is the artist behind our latest summer print called, "Flower Bomb".Originally from Sweden, he has been living in Sydney for about five years. Micke is currently working as a freelance illustrator and painter. The oversized florals and fun shapes are the results of Micke's experimentation of putting together the composition of shapes in an attempt to simplify the design even further. The collaborative approach opened up a world of colour options for him beyond his usual colour scheme. The end product is a vibrant, new print that perfectly captures the essence of summer.

I first met Maiah when she came into my Brunswick Studio last year for an outift to wear to the premier of 'My First Summer'. She spoke about her role and how she wanted to wear some bright colourful patterns to reflect her ray of sunshine character Grace. I have watched Grace blossom throughout the film and it has been really interesting to see Maiah take on this role. I’m often coming back to her on your socials for her vibrant energy and authentic voice. I was very eager therefore, to pick her brain about acting in general and other creative projects she is working on.
