Covid-19 has been pushing people to think outside of the box to solve changed circumstances.
Pippa Malmgren was the last speaker at our conference, and in prior presentations her role as an economist and a Presidential advisor saw her focus on global issues. This time - as a co-founder of H Robotics in London, a company which makes aerial intelligence systems (like drones) and autonomous vehicles for industry - she spoke about art being the wellspring of innovation and renewal. Covid-19 has been pushing people to think outside of the box to solve changed circumstances.
Her talk made us think about one very loyal client of ours, Karin Montgomery, an interior designer, who has made the most of lockdown. She started to create exquisite paper flowers, each of which requires incredible concentration and patience. The flowers are replicated botanically. Her body of work resulted in an exhibition at Anna Miles Gallery post lockdown, and every flower she produced was sold.
The photos of the flowers shown here in the newsletter are some of her creations (the blue vase is by Richard Stratton, and the ikebana vase by Isobel Thom). We’re pleased to announce that Karin has another exhibition coming up in December.
