Nature’s Bounty celebrated by AMPellegrini Art & Design

Anna-Maria Pellegrini is the designer-maker at AMPellegrini Art & Design and based in East London. She specialises in hand-painted nature illustrations with a great attention to detail and bold colours which are then digitally developed into story-telling print designs.

Highlighting the biodiversity of nature and putting a spotlight onto often overlooked details, is something she feels very passionate about. Her product range currently includes coasters, tea towels, tote bags and fine art prints and is entirely Made in the UK.

Bringing joyful colours and the natural world into people’s homes is a key value of Anna-Maria’s work. When she gets an idea for a new collection she goes on exploration and research trips to parks, museums and the wild nature to collect photographs which will form the base for her illustrations.

Anna told Home & Giftware magazine: “Originally I come from a textiles background and in 2017 I graduated from UAL’s Chelsea College of Arts with an MA in Textile Design. After working in the printing industry for 1.5 years, I decided last year to go ahead and start my own brand, which I always knew I wanted to do.

“My passion for exploring nature and for bold colours is expressed through and through in my work. When I get an idea for a new collection I go on field trips to parks, museums and into wild nature to collect photographs which form the basis for my illustrations. Kew Gardens, The Natural History Museum and The Horniman Museum are my favorite places for photography and gathering inspiration.

“Each design is based on hand-painted illustrations made by myself which are then digitally composed into story-telling designs. These are then digitally printed across a variety of homeware and lifestyle accessories. My design style is characterised by a great attention to detail, bold colours and slightly surreal compositions. Highlighting the biodiversity of nature is something I feel very passionate about.

“At the moment I offer Tile Coasters, Tea Towels, Tote Bags and Giclée Prints that are available across different themed collections that are all available for wholesale. All materials and products are sourced from UK suppliers and manufacturers.”
