Chat + Shop – With Kate Talbot from Hung Drawn and Quoted

Welcome to Chat + Shop, are you ready to start your weekend with another Somerset creator? My hope is Chat+Shop on Friday will lead to #shopsmallsaturday! You’ll struggle to know what to buy first with this week’s Chat+Shop guest Kate Talbot.

CALLING ALL REBEL RAISERS

Kate Talbot of Hung Drawn & Quoted is following fresh on @fromiegifts heels. And I’m so excited to have another Frome gem to share with you. Self confessed ‘rebel raiser’ Kate attended Central St. Martin’s and has exhibited alongside contemporaries such as Tracey Emin and Grayson Perry among others. Kate runs Hung Drawn & Quoted online and her bricks and mortar store is located on Catherine Hill in Frome.

The brand name is a play on words, giving an early indication of the hilarious satire Kate has become well known for. Her art work has been featured by the BBC, Vogue, Stylist Magazine amongst others. Kate’s art flows from a need, rather than an aesthetic. And inspiration often follows the topic of the day or a need to address a justice issue in a fresh way.

Always quick off the mark, Kate pens a poem about the PM exit!

I asked Kate what brings her joy about her work…

“I love that folk get a laugh from my work especially if it’s the political work as it just makes the tough day to day stuff easier to cope with!”

COMMISSIONS, CARDS + A DOSE OF CREATIVITY

Kate fuses her sense of fun with her creativity to produce art that looks familiar but invites a second look. The ‘Master Artists’ cards are a stroke of genius and show that art is subjective and open to interpretation. I love Kate’s other website which shows her commission work too, the dogs are incredible, one of the dogs looks like my sweet doggo Maple! You can buy Kate’s cards, bags, mugs and more online or in her store.

Find out more about Kate and her incredible work on her websites: Hung Drawn & Quoted and Kate Talbot and be sure to follow her on @hung.drawn.quoted Instagram for more satire and sarcasm.

Join me again next week for Chat + Shop where I’ll feature another incredible small business to add to your list! As always leave a note of encouragement for this week’s creator below!
