Last week I went to Pick Me Up Graphics and Art Fair at Somerset House and fell in love with the work of Irish exhibitor Nigel Peak.

Nigel has grown up and lives in a rural area of Ireland – his rich artwork reflects a fascination with the relationship between nature and the city. His work is almost like a scientific study of his surroundings, with his own notes and observations becoming the titles of repetitively marked and coloured landscape pieces.

I was so tempted to grab one of his original art pieces that were up for sale – they were soooo beautiful, but sadly my budget didn’t stretch to a £450 piece…instead I bought his beautiful new book Strom – observational illustrations from a week spent in a cabin in Norway.

Erie Basin

I’m off to New York in the summer and I’m dying to visit this place – mainly because of its wonderfully Gothic sounding name, but also because of its similarity to a Natural History Museum exhibit – with its cabinets full of glittering ancient objects and furniture that look like archeological artifacts.

Erie Basin is a small shop in Brooklyn specializing in on-trend 19th century jewellery and objects. With names like, ’1900s Edwardian Mississippi River Pearl Necklace’ [last image] each piece really resonates with character and history.
