My name is Victoria Brumwell. I am a multidisciplinary visual artist and maker, and the founder and one-woman producer behind my brand, Little Brummie. I make functional art for the home that is focused on surface pattern design, and most of my work is textile-based. I make tea towels, prints, tufted rugs, tufted wall hangings, coasters and pillows. I use methods such as tufting, screen printing, block printing and painting, and I make everything by hand. 

I love pattern and bright, saturated colours. I often incorporate organic forms that are abstracted from nature and simplified into blocks of colour in my designs. My work is pretty light-hearted: I make egg coasters, monstera wall hangings, plant and fruit wall hangings and slug rugs, among other things. I want to bring whimsy, texture and unexpected objects into people’s homes. Currently, I work from a home studio in my apartment.
