THERE'S ME, &
Hi, I am Steph.
I have been working in the fashion design industry for ten years but I am now at a crossroads. I love sculpting pieces with my hands but creating new things, in a world full of unwanted things, feels wasteful.
Then there's my sister, Nicola.
She is an artist enthralled by storytelling. Honing a craft was not her intention, but the magic happened when she realized she could write and make art simultaneously. A book is always her method of relaxation, but when it comes to expression, she envelops herself in her art, particularly in her collages.

4000KM Between Us
this blog kept us together when life spread us apart
We are two people with many differences but we are each other's biggest fans. We live apart so we always try communicating in different ways- like sending photos, or song lyrics, or dance videos. We started a blog called "Love From 4000KM Between Us" to keep in touch in 2013, but with the burdening load of life building up to our thirties, it became easier to text. Yes, we know the blog title doesn't make grammatical sense.
THROUGH THIS SITE, WE ARE HOPING TO EXPLORE
THE CHALLENGES WE FACE
AS CREATORS, CONSUMERS, AND
Living slowly is a lifestyle we want to promote and learn more about. To me, it means acknowledging and observing everything I use.
I use my hands to create, I use my mouth to taste, I use my art to feel. In my opinion it brings me into the present. It makes living more thoughtful.
As a team of two sisters, our dream is to collect and discuss art- of all forms. We are conscious creators, but we also sell items that align with our philosophy.
We are working with a small team of creatives to create an e-commerce market that is thoughtful, and interactive. We are both introverts but we get a lot of joy from thoughtful human interaction.
