Meet the Maker: Christina Banos of Homedrawn
Recently we launched our first ever edition of The Society inc Newspaper; a place to voice The Society inc discoveries, share trade secrets, reveal some hidden treasure and celebrate the talented clever craftsmen that surround me. We hand-picked some of our favourite creatives to create a newspaper that has a sense of humour as well as fun facts.
After following Christina Banos on her Homedrawn Instagram account, we got in touch & asked her to lend her talented hand at layering up some of our photographs & getting her handtouched interpretation of our very own hardware wall. This is the result!
Describe your studio & location
Most of my work is completed in my home office, however on occasion when I travel, I like to carry my supplies with me.
This is quite tricky as I feature a lot of colour throughout my work, however I’d have to say Black is classic.
Go-to subject matter
A collection of illustrated Interior desires, product, furniture, homewares etc Occasional fashion & beauty featured.
What do you do or where do you go for inspiration?
I am surrounded by Inspiration – from the people I work with to the articles I read, nature, commuting, travelling. I soak up as much as I can from places I visit or from the people I meet and talk to.
