Jessica, who is the founder of Deptford based brand Childsdraw, has a unique style combining traditional drawing with digital design. The artist draws inspiration from her urban surroundings, the people of Deptford, and the buzz of everyday London life. Jessica’s illustrations and art are applied to various items from prints, to clothing and ceramics – always in limited collections.
“Deptford is where my artistic roots are and the people here inspire me,” Jessica said. “I’m really excited about the collaboration with Pocket Living, not only do I have a new opportunity to celebrate my local area but I’m able to work with a developer who invests in and gives back to the communities they work with.”
The collection has been designed to resonate with the people of Deptford and future residents of Arklow Road, featuring Jessica’s signature motifs, including palm trees and local buildings, along with original inspiration taken from the Arklow Road SE14 building and its industrial heritage.
The range will be displayed in the newly launched Arklow Road SE14 show home and is available to purchase at www.childsdraw.com.
