Bren Sutton , Ink & Brayer

Hi, I’m Bren - a New Zealand-based artist and designer. Ink & Brayer is my online-only store, a curation of uplifting art and design.

When I see design that I love, I feel a surge of inspiration, energy and excitement, and I want you to feel that when you visit Ink & Brayer. I love joyful pattern, print and colour: striking patterns and weaves for the home, upbeat art, inspiring books and stationery, and jewellery that has appealing geometric forms. There’s something here for everyone - a treat for yourself, a gift for someone special, or something unique to spruce up your home. I hope you find something exciting and energising here - something that brings you joy.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit. Ink & Brayer is growing, and new content added daily. Please sign up to my newsletter for your 10% welcome discount code.

ABOUT ME

I was originally trained as a traditional animator and worked in the industry for several studios including Walt Disney Australia. Through the years I moved from hand-drawn to computer animation, and then as I went on to have a young family I worked in a variety of roles including retail, fabric design, and product design. Ink & Brayer is an opportunity for me to immerse myself in art using my varied experience and influences. I am very drawn to a Japanese aesthetic of simple elegance, and I particularly love woodblock or linocut art. Exciting use of colour captivates me - this stuff brings me joy! I am so energised by fresh design, bold geometrics and striking pattern, so that is what I aim to bring to you.
