Mimi Soan is an artist living and working from her home studio in South East London. Mimi works in a range of different media including, illustration, textiles and street art.
She has an inherent love of animals that inspire the creation of a range of soft, characterful creatures. Using up-cycled materials such as shrunken jumpers, blankets and other woollen articles. She enjoys including small details like the cuff, buttonholes or neckline, that give clues to the materials previous life.
Although a pattern is used, each creature is uniquely different and has an individual character of its own. This range of Fox and Badger plushies has been created exclusively for Simple Shape.
