Hi, I'm Alana.
Garmonsway Design is a brand new (ad)venture for me.
I have spent the majority of the last decade and a bit feeling progressively more and more that my creative "urges" were pulling my in a different direction than my career was heading. In 2011 these pesky little voices telling me to "make art" became overwhelming, and I caved in. I handed in my notice at my nice, stable job - and am diving into the business of making toys and art as my own boss.
Yes. Toys and Art.
I believe that a child's toys are their first introduction to the world of Art, and it saddens me when children are 'encouraged' to "grow up" and put away those toys. Toys are for grown-ups too!
We (the royal "we" currently) will be designing and producing a range of products, and you can follow along right here on this blog!
You will see plush toys, One Of A Kind Art Dolls, and I'm planning some adventures into resin, and maybe even porcelain...
