Welcome to The Magpie Files. With an ever-increasing collection of favourite online finds and more bookmarked boutiques than I have time to revisit, I decided they deserved their own dedicated platform, a virtual gallery of goodies accessible to all.
It is my hope that The Magpie Files will provide you with a regular feast for the eyes, inspiration for your residence and some show-stopping gift solutions.
Having a keen interest in contemporary art in all its forms, one of my missions for The Magpie Files is to showcase hidden talent and celebrate some lesser-known (as well as a few better-known) artists and craftspeople whose work I admire, with an emphasis on exquisite accessories for the home.
If you’ve discovered or know an artist, are an artist, or spotted something you think should be featured on The Magpie Files, I'd love to hear from you. Just head to this page.
In addition to founding The Magpie files, and in response to a number of requests for assistance to build/upgrade artists’ websites, I now offer a boutique web design and creation service – an affordable solution to take your creations or products from the studio or store and offer them to a worldwide market online. Here’s how it all began.
Thank you for visiting and I look forward to seeing you again – please sign up to my newsletter to be kept informed of my finds and peruse my articles-on-artisans. And, I would be delighted to hear from you if I can assist you in presenting your products or art to your online market.
I know it's often a challenge to keep control of inboxes so my promise to you is that your details will never be shared and I my newsletters are sent out no more frequently than fortnightly.
