birdinabunnysuit

I have been dying over the work of Bayley Collins of birdinabunnysuit as of late. A playful take on animal prints which are very hot to trot right now.

Bayley shares below a a bit of insight of what inspires her currently and how her business birdinabunnysuit eventuated.


I draw my inspiration from animals especially my two cats Ziggy & Zues. I think animals can have the most amazing personalities and I try and make those personalities show through my work.

I have been reading a lot of beautiful children's books lately because a have a 6 month old boy - my favourite is The Forest by Marc Martin. I don't have a lot of time at the moment to read other books but I never miss an issue of Frankie Magazine.

My favourite blogs to read at the moment are Hello Sandwich, Not Cot http://www.notcot.org & Fancy New Zealands Design Blog.  These are all great for a little dose of everyday design.



I started birdinabunnysuit kind of by mistake by just mucking around one day. I made a little collage of a rabbit with an owls face. My Husband asked me what it was and I replied "it's a bird in a bunny suit" from there I started making more and more prints and was shocked that people actually wanted to buy them. It really is my dream job!

Thanks so much for sharing with us Bayley.
