Welcome to Mamamia’s art endeavour, the Voulez-Vous Project. Every week we celebrate emerging artists, designers, illustrators, creators and women who knit using their vaginas. (Kidding. Maybe.) Our aim: to help the internet become a slightly more beautiful, captivating, or thought-provoking place by making art accessible. To find out more about the Voulez-Vous project, click here.

We love to travel, let’s admit that. Many of us get drawn in by one trip and soon after, we’re hooked. We’ve got wanderlust.
For Jennifer Reid from Fantangle designs, she loves travelling like the rest of us. But she uses her passion as a common source of inspiration in her work.
“I am often mesmerised by nature, so I also focus on animals and flowers as inspiration, anything of beauty actually,” she told Mamamia.
Her passion for art has seen her create many pieces that have been immortalised into cushions and pillows.
This interest in 3D, she says, is stemmed from the joy it brings.

“It’s one thing seeing your work on a flat screen or piece of paper, but there is nothing that compares with the joy of holding your own artwork in your hands in the form of a cushion, piece of clothing or greeting card.”
Jennifer has always known what a creative soul she was. She’s been creating and appreciating art since she was a young girl.
“I have loved creating and appreciating art ever since I can remember. I come from a very creative family so it is easy to indulge in creativity as a lifestyle choice. I can’t imagine living anything other than a creative life.”
