Hello and a very warm welcome from sisters Anna Westwood and Jayne Walsh, the faces behind I Am Not A Brand, your exciting online arts and gift shop.
The name I Am Not a Brand came from founder Jayne Walsh whilst studying for a degree in graphic design, it stems from an interest in how media, communication and advertising impact on mental health.
We believe it is important to be kind to yourself and one of the ways to do that is to look after your immediate environment. A beautiful painting or decorative mug can help remind you to look after your own well being and state of mind.
Anna (blonde) and Jayne photographed as children, on a visit to London during the 1970's, with their parents Frank and Gillian Cole.
We like to think of ourselves as a little bit unusual and quirky just like the art we produce. Our creative gene was inherited from our dad Frank, and our grandfather who was affectionately known to us as Pops. Sadly, we are both older now than our parents were when this photograph was taken. How time flies.
