The Creative Collection with Urbanwalls

collaborationsdana mooneyComment

My latest collaboration has launched with Urbanwalls and I am so excited to see how they spark creativity in your homes!  This project is close to my heart, because it happened so organically and the process was one of my funnest experiences as a collaboration to date.

When Danielle Hardy (owner and creative director at Urbanwalls) and I first met, I knew that we had to create something together.  Her energy and was contagious, and the ideas between us started to form right away.  What was supposed to be a simple artist meet up, turned almost instantly into big plans of a collaboration collection between us.  I left our meeting with so many visual ideas forming in my head and literally could not wait to start to work on the process.  And so the project was born!  

Take a look on Urbanwalls website here, where you can read more about our story and shop the decals - they are limited edition so don't wait too long!  3 colourways, in Hearts and Ikat shapes, and endless design possibilities.

New Paperworks Pieces - coming to my site February 1

Paperworksdana mooneyComment

I've been working on new additions to my Paperworks Collection, which will be released and available to buy through my site on February 1 and I just wanted to share with you a bit about these pieces and what goes into them.  The Paperworks collection really stems from my first introduction to painting as a teenager and kid.  Using watercolours and loose inks and gouache is the most natural form of painting to me, and the most genuine.  If it means anything to you too - I am a Pisces.  

This year I have found myself pushing my energy levels in my career and creativity to my own extremes, and have been feeling very overwhelmed with my growing to do list.   Of course, this is my dream come true and I love all of my projects, but when I've been feeling out of sorts I have found that coming back to my Paperworks collection and creating something free, calming or expressive without any pressures or expectations is my way of breaking through stressful moments and getting back to myself.  So, in the past, I have focused on creating cohesive themes in my collections, but I wanted to let go of any rules with this set of paintings and just create.  I hope that there is a little something for everyone in this Spring set, and I can't wait for your feedback!
