The artist

Romy

The designs on these products are all taken from prints of original artwork by Romy.

Based in the south west of the UK, Romy creates using lino cuts, drawings, collage, things found in nature, paintings and photography. She also creates through performance and using words with poetry and other creative writing.
 

Not liking to be restricted by only using  certain mediums, she uses anything she comes across to create, and sees ways of creating in every part of daily living. 

She feels she has to be creative; as it's a form of meditation, a way to be present, to just be, and knows that it's absolutely necessary for her wellbeing. Having been diagnosed with the chronic illness, Myalgia Encephalomyelitis (ME), Romy had to make big life changes. She  knew she needed to create more because of the therapeutic benefits, so enrolled, as a mature student, on a Creative Arts Therapies Studies degree.

Having graduated, she now facilitates Arts & Health projects and workshops for people from all walks of life, under the guise of Bring into Being.
