Art in the home of Lisa Golightly from Kiki&Polly

A: Art means to me…an experience.  Whether it is looking, listening, it doesn't matter.

R: Reading books / blogs / magazines …I read far too many blogs to mention but some of my current favs are: Field & SeaBlissCory GibbonsFrench By DesignHingeRemodelista .My favorite magazines are home magazines, Living Etc., Inside Out, Elle Decor, Canadian House and Home


{the large horse painting above the fireplace by Lisa herself is actually based on a drawing her son made}

T: Trends I see in art or graphic design are…I always notice things that relate to how I'm feeling and working.  So because of that, I am seeing a lot of abstract, 'washes' of colors and shapes.

A: Artists I admire are…My dad, I see something new every time I look at his paintings.

N: Never will I … stop making art.  

D: Dreams for my own work are about…I dream that I keep pushing myself and that my work continues to evolve and grow. 


P: Projects I'm currently working on are…I'm rather into painting horses right now and I have my hands full with my portraiture work and a couple exciting projects.

R: Relaxing I do at / when / if…If my art is my passion, horse back riding is my obsession.  It has been all my life.  

I: Interesting art-places online are…The Jealous CuratorDrooelI-want-a-print 


N: New in my home is…The pillows on my sofa by  Elizabeth Siegan available at hinge 

T: Tomorrow I like to go to…as it is likely to rain (again), I'd say coffee shop in the morning followed by a look around some pretty shops, a little art supply shopping them home!  I am actually quite a home body, especially if it is dreary out.

S: Studio, my studio is…My studio is finally emerging out its mess, which is a relief.  I dream of an open white, light filled space separate from our house that is completely dedicated to making art. Someday….

    I’ve admired Lisa’s art for quite a while (still hope to own one of her originals some day 🙂 and I love her home just as much! Simple yet gorgeous – love, love, love!

The Bamburgh Cardigan

Head to the North East of England until your reach the land of ancient castles, historic churches and rugged moorlands, and you will arrive in fibre artist Joanne Storie's homeland. This iconic landscape (think Hogwarts) is where she creates her signature BareFaced Yarns - a perfect mix of sheep wool and baby Alpaca - that strongly reflects the rich cultural heritage of the region.

Darling, crack a smile

Crack a smile

“Darling, crack a smile”... How often have you had that said to you while you were minding your own business? Photographer Mia Mala McDonald and needlwork artist Catherine Tipping had enough of this approach. So they created the joint exhibition Why Doesn’t She Crack A Smile?
