We have worked with talented creators from both the local and national scene to bring you nature-inspired designs for our clothing. The following is a list of all our artists and collaborators that have helped us with the Brother Wolf Project.
Helen Entwisle is an illustrator and screen printer based in Grange over Sands. After graduating in 2007 she has worked on many creative projects and built up a brand of colourful hand printed products under the name of Memo Illustration. Helen has worked as an illustration lecturer at Uclan Preston, and taught many print making and creative workshops. The main focus in recent years has been to set up a screen printing workshop at home where Helen now spends her days drawing and printing.
Since the early days of Memo Illustration Helen has focused on using eco friendly materials, including recycled paper & card stocks, organic/recycled fabrics, Soil Association approved inks and compostable packaging. This choice to be as ‘low impact’ on the environment as possible is key to every part of the creative process for Helen, which could be why this creative collaboration with Brother Wolf has been so enjoyable and sparked a fun range of colourful eco-conscious designs!
Helen has been a crucial cog in this little start – up’s journey illustrating designs for the first collection and hand screen printing this first collection.
I am a photographer, and my two passions are people and the local area. I was born in Lancaster and have lived in the area for most of my life. I class myself as fortunate to live in an area that has it all: “City, coast and countryside” (as we often boast). My favourite commissions are those that allow me to photograph people in this beautiful area, using the stunning scenery as my backdrops. When Brother Wolf approached me to collaborate with them, I had to say yes!
I also photograph families and behind-the-scenes of businesses, both as naturally and authentically as I can. I love telling stories and conveying meaning through my work. I am also exploring fine art portrait photography at present and am planning my first solo exhibition in Morecambe.
My background is in Occupational therapy and I worked in mental health settings for fourteen years. I loved the opportunity to talk to people about ‘what makes them tick’ and assist them to regain connections to these important aspects of themselves. I hope that my photography work goes some way to achieving the same goals.
I am a Dorset artist and children’s book author and illustrator. My images have been influenced by the beauty of the natural environment by depicting the dramatic landforms and wildness of the coast. My paintings are in water-colours overlaid with pen and ink.
In 2017, I was captivated by the patterns of a starling murmuration at Shell Bay in Studland and my mesmerizing result was on the front of Purbeck Art Weeks Events Programme last year. My commission titled “Starling Dance” for the business “Brother Wolf” was of great interest to me, as I value their aims and ethos.
At present, I exhibit at Purbeck New Wave Gallery, Swanage; where I steward with other local artists and work on my paintings. This year I have been studying the patterns in the local Jurassic coast rock formations, resulting in largely monochrome drawings embellished with watercolours.
My past career was a Primary School Teacher in Poole, Dorset. This encouraged me to write and illustrate family books about conservation. These books are non-profit making as the proceeds go to Dorset’s local wildlife and countryside charities.
Gill’s beautiful ‘Starling Dance’ design will be featured in our winter designs 🙂
I’m a 16 year old illustrator, currently about to become a full time art student. You could say that I spend a lot of my time drawing children’s illustrations and mixed media landscapes, in my own unique style.
The landscapes that I draw look at wildlife in its natural habitat, ranging from the Lake District to areas of wild Scotland. Often being armed with a vast selection of art materials, I love to capture all of this down on paper.
Over the years, drawing has always been my number one passion and I am so glad that I have already taken the leap to pursue my dream career as an illustrator. It has meant that I have been able to work with some amazing people along the way.
Working with Brother Wolf was a perfect opportunity for me to be inspired by the natural world and draw my first ever beaver!
