Testimonials:

“Oenone is wild and wonderful, creative and colourful..but also has a sense of stillness and sacredness. She created my headdress with such reverence and honour for my feathers and my medicine…and for me! I’m so grateful”

Louise Carron Harris

“Oenone’s creativity, attention to detail and pure style, results in fabulous pieces to be cherished or gifted. The only problem is I never want to gift them!”

Kirsty Vijn

“We ordered a beautiful embroidered puffin for my sister, who is totally obsessed with them, and it’s just perfect! Such a unique piece. She loved it and it’s a total one-off. Perfect as a gift or just a treat for yourself.”

Katy + Elizabeth

“Oenone did an amazing job covering the bottom shelf of my bespoke kitchen island. She listened to my brief and worked with me the whole way to create the unusual surface finish which I desired. It was a very tricky design and I am very happy with the result”

Gina Bujakowski

“Oenone is one of the most remarkable artists I know and her talents have no limits. I have had many pieces made by Oenone and each one is unique and beautiful. Her vision shows endless possibilities. I’m looking forward to the next exhibition…”
