Artist home / Jessica Zoob

June 19, 2010

The successful painter Jessica Zoob and her husband David, a theatre director, made the decision to leave London with their two daughters and move to Lewes in Sussex. They bought a contemporary terrace house with a garage. Having been a set designer Jessica turned this very small house into a light, airy and practical home for her family, and the garage next door into a light filled studio. She has also turned a nondescript back yard into a charming garden!

Simple bags

May 14, 2010

The Sevedge magazine features makers in every issue of the magazine. They choose artists that fulfil their criteria of well-fashioned design, beautiful raw materials and integrity in the process of making. They have also gathered a select group of items that we can buy direct from Selvedge web page.

I choose some bags, because I adore the simplicity of beauty that they represent. I think also I choose those bags because now I am in the moment of searching the right pattern of bag I want to sew for myself. Maybe you’ll find the righ for you … :-)

3. Assume that your way of thinking is always right.
4. Only pretend to listen to other people’s ideas.
5. Believe that creativity cannot be learned.
6. Play it safe, avoid risks.
7. Ensure that you are never wrong.
8. Always think logically.
9. Critique while creating, not after.
10. Constantly copy other people’s ideas.
11. Believe that creativity is work, not fun.
12. Spend an irrational amount of time thinking about an idea before acting on it.
13. Never write down your ideas.
