One Good Thing Leads To Another

Raining Sunshine

One of the nifty things about working with DiaNoche Designs on September’s ‘Find of the Month’ post was being introduced to the Canadian artisans that already team up with that brand. While they license their artwork for application to DiaNoche’s range of pillows, shower curtains, and trademark illuminated art, these creative types also produce and sell their prints and other items through boutiques, galleries and online. One of those artists is Julia Di Sano, an abstract acrylic painter based in Vancouver.

What Goes Up Earrings
In recent years, Julia has applied her bold, graphic style to other items – like jewelry, accessories, and home decor items, all of which incorporate digital prints of her work. Even cooler? She actually handcrafts or has all pieces produced in Canada and the US, meaning you know you’re getting a homegrown product. Julia’s line has attracted an audience; her items are sold at a number of posh boutiques through B.C. and Ontario, as well as through her personal website, Ebi Emporium, and on Etsy, where she’s already racked up hundreds of sales. In addition, she licenses her artwork for reprint through companies like the aforementioned DiaNoche Designs, Society 6, Redbubble, plus some international outfits in Japan, Singapore, and France.

Ebi Emporium Into The Fall Decorative Throw Pillow Cover
In general, I love Julia’s work for the reason why I love many of the brands I feature on this blog – COLOUR! I think her aesthetic is one of those that can be universally appreciated – even if you live in a monochromatic world, a bright painting or pillow can be all you need to really liven up the space and give it a modern, personal feel.

The price points are wholly reasonable for gift-giving as well. Give a schoolmate a funky pencil case for under $20, gift your mom with a gorgeous pair of artisanal earrings for under $30, or be the star of a housewarming party by picking out a funky print or original painting for $29 – $420.

Ebi Emporium Prizing

      That’s nice you enjoy that piece, but this contest is specifically related to Ebi Emporium’s work – not Ruth Palmer’s. Please post something related to Ebi Emporium’s items to be considered.

  19. I love the pink and orange pillow you have featured, it would be a perfect accent pillow.
