The second collection is Street Life, by Jessica Hogarth.  It’s a quirky and sophisticated, based on the hustle and bustle of a city. From aerial views of the streets to parks, phone boxes, crowds and trees, Jessica combines the urban and natural icons of city life against a bright yet muted palette.  This Jessica’s first collection for Dashwood, but something tells me it won’t be her last!
