Welcome to figTart
Hello. We are Lou and Molly Sayers. Great friends, but also step-mother and step-daughter… a special relationship that we love.
The first seed for figTart was planted whilst we were together on a yoga retreat in Romania, celebrating each others big birthdays deep in the Transylvanian hills. It was on the way home - with clear heads, lungs full of fresh air and feeling both calm and inspired - Molly asked Lou for a special photograph to commemorate the trip, so she could hang it on her wall at home and be reminded of that moment in time.
Lou: "We’d just spent several days immersed in the countryside and felt really connected with nature, so I wanted to create something tactile and tangible. Knowing Molly's keen eye for style and love of textiles, I began to imagine how I could incorporate fabrics alongside a stunning portrait of a unique flower. I wanted to create something original and personal for Molly, and give her something that she would cherish forever."
We both share a love of interior design as well as the great outdoors, so when brainstorming the idea we became excited to see how we could bring these worlds together to complement and enhance each other. The initial idea soon developed into a myriad of possible styles, textures and colours.
We realised that other people might be as excited as we were with these artworks and allow us to combine our two passions; Lou’s photography and Molly’s love of making.
Our little seed sprinkled with sunlight and creativity gradually grew and put down some roots.
