 Kali Stileman  After completing a degree in 3D design at Brighton Poly I illustrated for the Body Shop, painted murals and then changed tack and taught primary aged children until the birth of my daughter. We moved to Bermuda for 3 years where I sold collages and paintings through local art galleries. When we returned to the UK, I painted botanical images for a ceramics company and then when my son began full time school, I started up The Square Card Company which later became Kali Stileman Publishing.  My children are my greatest inspiration and my fiercest critics. They have come up with lots of ideas and it was Finn that designed the monster and peacock cards when he was ten.  In recent years I have been writing and illustrating books for Random House.  peely wally  was a surprising success and was shortlisted for the   red house book awards 2012   and has been selected to go in the bookstart bags that all children in the UK receive at eighteen months.  time for tea polly wally , the sequal was released a year later. I have also illustrated  the big book of nursery rhymes  and  the big book of my world  which to date has been translated into 26 different languages and won the  rightstart gold medal toy award  for 2012.    the national literacy trust   have chosen  big book of my world  for their   london literacy champions project  .

 Neal & Helena Vaughan  Helena: Drawing is my first passion but I use a mix of hand and digital techniques to achieve a variety of effects. My inspiration comes from wherever I find shape, structure and vibrant colour.  I studied fine art, graphics, photography and animation at college before working in the media industry in London for 10 years. I now teach Art and Design part time alongside producing and selling my ranges of poster designs and books.  Neal: I have been working within the creative industries for over 20 years. Starting within the media industry in broadcast media, he progressing into visual arts as an artist, workshop leader, teacher and project manager/events organiser. Exhibtions have included works in group shows with the Royal Society of British Artists, The Chelsea Arts Society, Croydon Arts Society and United Society of Artists.  My studio base in Carshalton lets me work in a variety of ways as a multi disciplinary contemporary fine artist. The work I am currently focused on is recording locations across the UK, following popular walks and trails to work quickly on sketches or final works 'plein air.' This hopefully gives my work a vitality and freshness that is becoming increasingly popular with collectors and galleries alike.

 Bathing Bunnies  Hello. I’m Angela Taylor and I am the founder of Bathing Bunnies – home of luxury baby gift towels.  Before starting my family, my working life was spent travelling the world where I specialised in the luxury towelling and textiles markets of the US, Europe and Asia, sourcing products for high-end hotels and fashion houses.  Fifteen years ago, I decided to make the UK my home and, around that time, a good friend invited me to her Baby Shower. I wanted to buy her something really special – something original and luxurious but also practical. I spent a lot of time searching the Internet for the perfect gift but I just couldn’t find it so I set about designing my own brand new range of luxury towelling gifts for babies – and that’s when Bathing Bunnies was born!  I design all the products myself and only work with a handful of specially selected manufacturers who are expert in working with quality towelling and who have the skills to complete the detailed embroidery and finishing touches to my exacting standards.
