Charlotte Cory - Graduated with a degree in Art History from York University.
Charlotte Cory is an artist with an established studio and gloriously quirky world of her own.

Her works are in the Royal Collection, have been shown at the Royal Academy together with installations at the Bronte and John Soane's museums.
"Wallpaper is so important in a room, it can instantly change the whole feel of the space and the whole mood of the people in that space. I hope my wallpapers will make people feel happy..."
The Portrait Gallery Wallpaper features gloriously peculiar animals reworked into Victorian photography. Charlotte has used many of her original works to create this stunning, quirky and bold wallpaper.
Laura Allen - Graduated with a degree in Textiles and surface Design from Cleveland College of Art and Design.
Since graduating Laura has specialised in digitally printed wallpapers. Heavily influenced by nature Laura often uses this as a starting point for her collections. The main inspiration behind her new collection of wallpapers, Exotic Fusion, comes from a visit to the Bronx Zoo in New York, which was full of exotic and interesting wildlife.
Each aspect of the design is carefully painted in watercolour with a focus on detail and then pieced together digitally to create lush and beautiful scenes. The result is a unique and individual wallpaper design combining both traditional and modern techniques that can be used in all interiors to create a stunning focal point.
Laura's wallpaper designs have been exhibited at international trade shows including Surtax in New York and Indigo in Paris."
This gorgeous Lemur Cushion designed by Laura Allen for The Graduate Collection is an exotic fusion of bright tropical flowers, butterflies and of course a cute lemur. A gorgeously sophisticated cushion perfectly suited to both classic and contemporary interiors.
