Kip&Co x Kezz Brett; meet the artist behind the collaboration

The queen is back! After the overwhelming success of our first two collaborations, we are crushing over our latest collaboration with the beloved Aussie artist, Kezz Brett. Introducing Waterlily Waterway, a serene, hand painted print, inspired by the enchanting waters and pond blooming plants just outside of Darwin.

Join us in this exclusive interview with Kezz to uncover the inspiration, process, and emotions that led to the creation of her enchanting Waterlily Waterway print. As we peel back the layers of her artistic journey, discover the intricacies that transform a simple aquatic flower into a timeless work of art featured across bedding, table and sleepwear. 

Hi Kezz, we're so thrilled to be collaborating with you again with this Kip&Co x Kezz Brett collection! Can you tell us about the inspiration behind the Waterlilly Waterway print for this collaboration?

I love painting these waterlilies - the flowers, the ripples of the water, the hint of something beneath the surface... there is so much to explore!

There are SO many gorgeous new products to this range - silk and pjs are our team's tops pick! What is your favourite piece from the collection?

I love it all, and I really loved the previous collection we worked on together too! But the French flax linen tablecloth brings me instant joy - I find it super easy to style with the range of colours in the artwork too.

A lot of your work features nature and the outdoors – flowers, landscapes, iconic Australian landmarks. What inspires you to create these works?

I'm so lucky to spend so much time outdoors. Here in Orange, we are spoilt by the beautiful landscapes and native flowers. I love trying to capture this serenity.

Vibrant, colourful, bold and unstructured, your work combines semi-abstract and figurative elements. Why is the use of colour so important to you?

I couldn't imagine my life without colour - it doesn't even cross my mind not to use every colour under the sun! It's just so fun and joyful, and who doesn't want a big dose of joy in their life!

If you could spend a day with any artist, who would it be?

Ken Done! The colour, the shapes, the texture. I would love to spend a day painting with Ken!

What's your best piece of advice for any budding artist?

Get in there, and get started! You’ll never think you’re good enough but it’s all about brush mileage. The more mileage, the better you become!
