From the shop owner
I work under the name 'Scofinn' made up by my Grandmother as a clear way to describe her half Finnish, half Scottish grandchildren.
I have a passion for colour and simple form which manifests itself in a Mid-century/Scandinavian/Nordic style. My inspiration comes mainly from nature, in particular fruit and vegetables and also from my ever growing collection of retro/Scandinavian pots, pans and ceramics!
A graduate of Central St Martins, I have worked as a textile designer and Illustrator. Please get in touch if you are interested in a commission, I’d be delighted to hear from you.
Nowadays, I host an 'Artists Open House’ both at Xmas and in May as part of the Brighton Festival - and have been nominated in the Top 15 venues, where I show my textiles, giclee prints and greetings cards along with freshly baked cinnamon and cardamon buns!
Why we love
To be honest, there's nothing I don't love about Scofinn. Every time her illustrations pop up on Instagram, they always call out to me! A fellow fan of Scandinavian pots (I chanced upon some Catherine Holm cookware at a car boot sale when I moved to Brighton around 18 years ago and have been a fan ever since!), Scofinn's bright, simple aesthetic is spot on. I really recommend following Scofinn on Instagram as you'll be rewarded with beautiful images and gentle musings throughout the seasons. It's truly lovely.
With prints, tea towels, melamine chopping boards, hand knitted trivets and greeting cards, her website is a gifting delight. If you're a fan of relaxed minimalist styling, vintage homewares - or, if you just really like pickles - there's something for you (or a lucky friend). Go and have a look.
