Andrew and Vida Pain started to work together in late 2010 with the idea of designing and creating a beautiful range of quirky illustrations. Andrew worked in the building trade since leaving school before embarking on a journey of becoming a self taught artist. With a keen passion for nature and all things rural, the Irish countryside became the inspiration for his designs and are now brought to life through the use of vivid colour and exaggerated form. The ideas for many of the drawings can often come from chance encounters and as there’s usually a story behind each one, a playful and uplifting title is given to these quirky contemporary designs.
"It’s my love of nature that inspires each and every piece"
Vida is a visual artist in her own right specialising in oil painting with a degree in fine art and has had a number of curated shows here in Ireland.
