WHERE AND HOW WE CREATE

One of our key aims with Field Trip is to make sure the artists represent an inspiring balance of styles. We create our artwork in very different environments from studios all over the world and, as you can see, we have a wide variety of interesting approaches. We hope you enjoy this peek into our creative lives! 

Monika (left/top) is Swedish but lives in London, where she works from her apartment on a small scale, assembling her imaginative collages out of drawn bits or paintings. Kelly (right/bottom) creates gestural, watercolour florals and abstracts from a small and charming Michigan town. She often works at a very large scale to keep the movement of her brushstrokes fluid and free.

Carrie and Morgan from Ampersand Design Studio work closely together in their light-filled studio in Kansas City to create their bold, artful, fun, and colour-filled style. Their favourite techniques include pen and ink, paint and cut paper.

Suzy (left/top) collects inspiration, from vintage ephemera to unique textiles and notions, perfectly balancing sophistication and whimsy from her studio in Ohio. Jillian (right/bottom) sketches and paints from her home studio in Dorset, using different techniques to create her signature style, always accompanied by her friendly Dachsund, Bertie.

Carolyn works from her home in LA and often finds herself painting at this gorgeous dining table, working on her computer at her corner desk in the living room, or sitting on the couch with her pup, Sugar, while drawing in her sketchbook.

Nottene Studio is a husband and wife team working from their studio in Philadelphia. They like to push the boundaries of what is possible in screen printing and drawing to see how much of the details and pleasant imperfections can be brought out during the process.

Sara works from her Brownstone apartment in Brooklyn, documenting details of her life in stunning sketchbooks that have become a huge part of her work. She often looks back through them to inspire a new project.

Elizabeth (left/top) is Canadian, working in Lisbon. She begins by drawing on paper then redraws her motifs on her iPad Pro, lovingly assembling each element into a well-composed pattern with a focus on balance and delicious colour. Victoria (right/bottom) is English, working from her home studio in Rome. She experiments with a range of materials and techniques, rarely sketching or planning but letting her designs grow organically.

Caroline is French but has recently moved to New York for a while. Hand-drawing is always her first step, before organising and perfecting digitally, followed by experimenting with unexpected colour palettes (her favourite part!).

HUGE SUCCESS FOR OUR 2nd FIELD TRIP EVENT

We held our second Field Trip show in New York on May 22nd, with an absolute dream team of artists, and we were joined by an incredible guest list for what turned out to be another amazing show.

Though it was a rainy day outside, we were so pleased that so many clients came out to see us. There were cocktails and bubbly, beautiful charcuterie, our DJ Lauren set the perfect vibe, and this year we added a little extra magic with a charming little candy bar.

It was an amazing day and we’re so grateful to all the friends and suppliers who helped us put it all together. 

These gorgeous photos taken by Christine Han (http://christinehanphotography.com) really capture the fun and inspiring vibe of the show. 

And we will be back ! If you’d like to hear more about our event as we prepare for our event next May, sign up for our newsletter or follow us on Instagram. And if you’re an art director or potential client looking to attend next year, please request an invite on our website.

We hope to see you next year!

ANOTHER YEAR, ANOTHER FIELD TRIP

We’re thrilled to announce Field Trip is coming back to New York on Monday, May 22, 2017.

It will be held in the same beautiful, light-filled loft in the garment district where the show took place last year. The event coincides with Surtex/NSS/ICFF so clients can easily take a trip around the corner to join us for the opportunity to spend time in a casual, fun environment, viewing lovely artwork while enjoying cocktails, appetizers, and great music! 

A fresh alternative to a trade show, our event will be intimate, focusing on quality over quantity — connecting great artists with great clients, and even introducing clients to each other — you never know where sparks will fly.

If you’d like to attend this year’s event, please get in touch via the request an invite page. 

Hope to see you there!

FIRST FIELD TRIP EVENT

After months of preparation, we hosted our first Field Trip Event on May 16, 2016 in New York, in a big beautiful loft in the garment district. It's always difficult to gauge how something new will be received but we were all delighted by the response. So many of our best clients joined us for cocktails, appetizers and the opportunity to spend time in a light-filled, relaxing environment, viewing lovely artwork.  

We think you can see from the pictures that it was a hugely enjoyable success and worth all the effort. If you came to the show we hope you had a wonderful time. We were so happy to see so many friendly faces and show off our most recent work. It really was an absolute pleasure. Thank you.

Interested in hearing a bit more about what the event is all about? Check out this great interview we did on Pattern Observer !

Stay tuned for news about upcoming Field Trip events by signing up for our newsletter.

Until then, here are some of the gorgeous photos from the event. (The photos are taken by Malcolm Brown (with the exception of a few).  We think he did an amazing job and hope you enjoy looking at them ! )
