Thornback & Peel
Juliet Thornback and Delia Peel met in 2003. While continuing their day jobs as a florist (Thornback) and theatre designer (Peel), they embarked upon their first collaboration, a series of handprinted clutch bags. They set up a studio in 2006 at Cockpit Arts, London. A year later they established Thornback & Peel to create beautiful, intricate screen-printed pieces for the home.
Born and raised in Lyme Regis, Dorset, Martin studied illustration and design in the west country , then went on to spend more than 15 years working in London. After a successful career in advertising he left to pursue a less stressful life painting and illustrating in Wiltshire. He took inspiration from the farmland around and specialised in paintings and carvings of farm animals, having a book published in 2000 titled 'The old pig" , about the old English rare breeds. He now lives and works back in Lyme Regis after moving for a number of years to rural France with his wife, dogs and horses. His retro artwork conjurers up a lost world of the 1950's, cupcakes, beach huts and village fêtes have been developed into a homeware and gift range that offers hundreds of products from Mugs to Memo boards.
