‘Painted Love' is showcasing its new collection at Sprout Arts.  Pre-loved furniture that has seen better days and down on its luck, is saved from the landfill site and lovingly restored.  Add to the mix a contemporary twist and these original pieces have been reinvented with love. The collection, which has been influenced by the mid century modern period, is complemented with handmade soft furnishings and collectible pieces.

 

Tracey Morant is an art teacher who in her spare time began renovating furniture, along with her other creative outlet of pottery. She loves to find new ways of reusing old things. She met Rachel 18 years ago whilst working in the travel industry and they have remained firm friends, and painting partners, ever since. 

Rachel Young is a busy mum who spends a lot of time sanding down old furniture whilst the children are at school. She also works as production manager for the Secret Pillow Project, empowering women in India through training and work opportunities.
