We've written about Toronto illustrator Alanna Cavanagh before. And we'll probably write about her again. That's because we're huge fans of her big, bold and graphic prints. We're not alone: Her work keeps popping up in our featured homes (as well as on the walls of Covet Garden's own Lynda Felton).

Cavanagh's work gives energy to every day objects. Best-known for her prints of everything from scissors to Penguin Paperback covers, she always imbues her subjects with an imagined back story. She's also a big fan of interior design, fashion and art and this sensibility feeds back into her sophisticated and witty screen prints. Most recently, Cavanagh has branched off into surface design and we couldn't be more excited.
