OPHELIA MIKKELSON X NELSON

This Spring 2019 Jamie Nelson launches her collaboration with sweet angel Ophelia Mikkelson.

Ophelia is an artist from New Zealand, and one of the kindest people on the planet.

Her practise considers ideas surrounding everyday actions, objects and the space of home. Moving between painting, photography, cooking and object making, she approaches each avenue with the same lens — to seek out or highlight the beauty, lightness and fragility of a fleeting moment or ordinary thing.

This collab began with a reciprocal love for each others work, a realisation we grew up on the same street (!!), and a conversation around the importance of sustainability and low impact making. The collaboration includes natural dying using compost waste and hand painting.

Numbers are very limited as Ophelia has created these dreamy materials by hand!
