b. 1991 Nottingham, UK 

Demi creates sculptural works on paper as she explores drawing and mark making using pinpricking, sewing and painting. She uses her experience of landscape as her starting point, inspired by maps and aerial imagery focusing on stark areas such as mountains, canyons and deserts and translating them into her own minimal abstract language. The work intentionally slows the creative process down to inspire a meditative practice as the visual information is paired down to a minimum, hinting at features found within nature.

Demi Overton x Curio 

Curio is an evolving collection of handcrafted objects, beautiful art and imaginative design from around the world. Our mission is simple: to make it easier to find, fall in love with and acquire those truly special pieces that – large or small – have the power to transform spaces and enrich life.

 

Founded in 2022 by designer Shalini Misra and led by a team of industry experts, Curio represents the culmination of a decade long quest for such items, and offers not only a new e-commerce destination, but a world of stories, cultures, materials, tools and techniques. Inspiring and enabling a new generation of patrons who champion craft and the power of the handmade, Curio is, at its essence, a champion of human creativity, and works to preserve and safeguard these precious skills for the future by bringing makers, aesthetes and contemporary collectors together.
