One of my biggest disappointments is that I cannot draw, craft or design. I so wish I could create something imaginative and interesting. I have to live my artists dream through the life of my cousin who besides being incredibly talented, is also extremely brave. Last year she left her corporate position in London and moved to Folkestone to focus on her art full time. A decision that i admire her greatly for, living her dream.
Recently she also opened up a physical and online artist-run gallery and design boutique gallery in her hometown of Folkestone.
SENTIENT: THE HOME OF DARK, WITTY, THOUGHT PROVOKING ART & DESIGN showcases the work of around 40 artists and designers.
The curators at Sentient have worked hard to select the artists and makers who best represent the Sentient style, aesthetic, themes and mentality. In particular, this means a taste for the dark, questioning, eccentric, deep and edgy in art, design and living. At Sentient, we wouldn’t exhibit nor offer for sale anything we wouldn’t happily have in our own homes (and indeed, do own works by most of the artists and designers at home). Nothing makes it to the gallery unless we love it.
One new addition to the gallery is the recent collaboration between Rebecca and Esa Evans.
Esa and Rebecca have collaborated to create these fun, contemporary and affordable necklaces utilising playful phrases Rebecca uses in some of her popular neons and prints. The font was built out by Rebecca to look like her capitalised handwriting, The necklaces are available in stainless steel or 18 carat rose gold plated options and are now available to pre-order, with first deliveries expected late May. Each will come within an embossed Esa Evans x Rebecca Mason box.
Right now Rebecca is offering my readers 10% off any order over £20 across her site including these stunning necklaces.

Go visit Sentient and check out the artists featured there, including more collaborations Rebecca has done with other artists as I may be a little (lot) proud of my super talented cousin.
