Ashvin Harrison VISUAL ARTIST prints available globally on www.bluethumb.com.au (Shipping Globally)

I create based on my feelings for life and death… dark shadowing, strong contrast and a sense of light from above is often evident in my works.

My latest creation is based off an older work I created. I have now created enough tree inspired works to consider them a series. I come back to this idea as it links well to my views on life. You’ll notice I create most of my works in a singular form or through a sense of isolation. I also leave most background white to hint at timelessness through an existential view. I aim to make the focus of the piece set without time restriction, as if it could exist in any time or place. This boab tree is based off a boab I took photos of on my travels through Northern WA in 2008. Such a beautiful place to sit and think.

My latest creation is inspired by the beauty and mysterious nature of an owl and also a clear night sky. I, like so many, love owls. I started with charcoal to create a strong angle and deep shadow. I then added highlights to hint at night lighting reflections. A mix of acrylics and resin was then poured and splashed around the canvas to express movement, emotion and vibrant beauty. Ready to hang high quality canvas.

My charcoal and acrylics horse painting is created with a focus on freedom, time and the rhythm of life. I created a photorealistic looking horse with delicate charcoal brushing and smudging. I then splashed acrylics and acrylic mediums throughout with an intension to create motion within my desired theme/perspective on life. This art piece has 8 colours blended in a fluid look. It also created some additional colour blends throughout.

This Mother’s Day, buy the important lady in your life a gift that keeps on giving in the form of Didsbury Gin’s Raspberry and Elderflower pink gin – as seen on Dragons’ Den.

A welcome alternative to flowers and chocolates this year, this pink gin in a floral bottle (RRP £19) is the perfect gift for any gin lover, and can be paired with tonic or copa glasses as a thoughtful gift this March.

Hand crafted in eco-friendly copper stills it is a combination of Didsbury Gin’s original gin, fresh British raspberries with subtle notes from locally foraged elderflower.

A range of bright, vibrant and zesty gins created by gin drinkers for gin drinkers. Created by two Manchester gin enthusiasts Mark Smallwood and Liam Manton, Didsbury Gin, has been hailed by Vogue Magazine as ‘one of the most exciting new British gins’.

Taking inspiration from the vibrancy and colourful nature of Parsonage and Fletcher Moss botanical Gardens in south Manchester, Didsbury Gin is a refreshing citrus twist on a classic London dry gin, with a Mancunian background.

Already stocked in Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, Didsbury Gin is set to be the Gin of 2019. For more information visit https://www.didsburygin.com/.

In January 2019, Liam and Mark were seen on BBC Two’s hit show Dragons’ Den, as they pitched in front of the show’s five resident multi-millionaires in a bid to convince them to invest their own cash in the craft gin company.

After some initial banter between the multi-millionaires, Liam and Mark hooked in offers from both Jenny Campbell and Tej Lalvani. Ex-career banker turned business turnaround specialist and European cash machine entrepreneur Jenny prides herself on helping young talent realise their potential and the gin-makers felt an instant chemistry with her. With Jenny’s well documented love of gin and her own home gin bar already, they knew she was the right choice and have since gone through an upscale, rebrand, and are soon set to announce a number of listings with some of the UK’s biggest bar groups.

Dr. Bronner’s
America’s No. 1 Selling Natural Soap Cleans Everything and Leaves You with a Clean Conscience

… a simple loving gift this Mother’s Day. Focused on cleanliness and kind to skin.




Dr. Bronner’s is the USA’s No. 1 selling natural soap brand and the leader in organic and Fair Trade skin care. With famous fans including Kate Hudson, Lady Gaga, Natalie Portman, Drew Barrymore, Sandra Bullock, Eminem and Bobbi Brown, this soap is lathering its way into British homes and hearts with its philosophical labels, certified Fair Trade and organic ingredients and uncommon quality. Make up artist Bobbi Brown championed Dr Bronner’s on The Oprah Show “It’s probably the finest soap in the universe. I’m obsessed with it. I cannot get enough of it!”
The magic of Dr. Bronner’s is its affordability and versatility, with 18 uses from 1 bottle of liquid soap at £6.99 per 237ml bottle. Best used with a cloth, towel, loofah or sponge you can use it to clean your body, your mouth & teeth, your fruit & vegetables, your bathroom and kitchen, your clothes and even your pets! It comes in 9 main varieties, the original being the famous tingly Peppermint – “nature’s own unsurpassed fragrant Deodorant!” – followed by Lavender, Green Tea, Eucalyptus, Citrus, Almond, Rose, unscented Baby Mild and Tea Tree which can even be used to treat minor cuts.
The soaps are most popular for at-home washing, but are also the soap of choice for many campers and hikers. They contain no synthetic foaming agents, thickeners, preservatives, fragrances, dyes or whiteners and use 100% post consumer recycled (PCR) cylinder bottles and paper labels. Completely biodegradable, the soaps are made with certified Fair Trade and organic ingredients sourced from India, Ghana, Palestine, Israel, and Sri Lanka.

Dr. Bronner’s takes its organic credentials very seriously unlike many “natural” body care companies who masquerade their synthetically derived ingredients by using floral water as the main natural ingredient, while the functional ingredients are petrochemical derived and thus non-sustainable. The100% Pure Castile Soap recipe used in Dr. Bronner’s soap is a simple, ecological, vegetable based formulation, named after the Castile region of Spain where olive oil soaps where invented long ago. The high foaming lather of the soap is from its high coconut oil content, which makes a more luxurious and rich lather compared to any detergent formulation commonly found even in “natural stores.” Dr. Bronner’s superfat their soaps with organic hemp and jojoba oils for a milder, smoother lather and use natural plant-derived vitamin E and citric acid to protect freshness. Apart from flavouring organic essential oils such peppermint, the base soap ingredients are Water, Saponified Organic Coconut*, Organic Palm* and Organic Olive* Oils (w/Retained Glycerin), Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Essential Oils**, Citric Acid, Vitamin E.
Dr. Bronner’s soaps have been certified by the Vegan society UK. This certification assures the growing population of vegans that no animal testing or animal ingredients are used in Dr. Bronner’s products that carry the certification.

Other products in the Dr. Bronner’s range include Hand & Body Lotions, 4-in-1 Sugar Pump Soaps, Organic Lip Balms, Pure-Castile Bar Soaps, Organic Hand Sanitiser, All-One Toothpastes and – new for 2018 – new Whole Kernel Virgin Coconut Oil.

The Background The dramatic exhortations on the labels of the soap packaging come from the mind of Dr. Emanuel Bronner, a third-generation master soap maker who spent his life renouncing hate and war on a personal mission to unite mankind. He was born in 1908 to the German-Jewish Heilbronner family, which had been practicing the traditional local craft since 1858. In 1929, Bronner, then aged 21, immigrated to the US working as a consultant soap manufacturer. But following the death of his family in the Holocaust, he embarked on a mission to spread this message of world peace and the dangers of communism and fascism by giving public lectures on these subjects. His strong views landed him in a mental asylum in Chicago but Bronner escaped eight months later in 1948 and continued giving lectures in California. He also began making peppermint liquid soap under the ‘Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps’ brand. He gave away soap during his talks and when he realized people were taking it without listening to him speak, he started writing his philosophy on the bottle in tiny script. These eccentric labels, featuring musings on everything from Hillel to Confucious, are still used today. In the early years the soap enjoyed a small but loyal following. With the emergence of 1960’s counterculture, sales rocketed on word of mouth and the quality, as Dr. Bronner’s does not advertise. The soaps spread into health food stores across the US, and in recent years into mainstream shops.

Having always used natural ingredients, Dr. Bronner’s became officially certified organic by the US Department of Agriculture in 2003, branching into other organic personal care products in 2005. Today, its products are the top selling organic soap brand in the US and are distributed world wide. Although Dr. Bronner passed away in 1997, his company continued to flourish under his son Ralph, daughter inlaw Trudy and grandsons David and Michael. In a time where CEO compensation can reach as high as 500 times the average worker’s wage, Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps remains true to it’s founders’ philosophy of sharing profit with the workers and the earth from which it was made by capping the salaries of the highest paid employees/owner’s at five times that of the lowest paid full time employee.

Dr Bronner’s is available nationwide from leading health stores including Whole Foods, Planet Organic and John Bell & Croydon or visit www.drbronner.co.uk.

JOHNSON’S® launches over 50 new products, now available across the UK and Ireland and promising only the best for baby


JOHNSON’S® brand has completely improved, inside and out, to deliver everything parents want and nothing that they don’t. With a mission to create the gentlest baby products in the world, backed by science and testing, JOHNSON’S® has transformed to meet the needs of today’s modern parents with products and packaging to provide only the best for baby. Now available at major stockists in the UK and Ireland, the new products mark a major milestone in the iconic brand’s 125 year history.

As the number one baby brand in the UK, JOHNSON’S® understands that today’s parents have different wants and needs from the products they use on their babies, both inside and out. With decades of pioneering research in baby care and rigorous testing, JOHNSON’S® has worked with thousands of real parents to improve everything about their products so they can trust and feel confident using them. Over 400 ingredients were completely rejected during the reformulation. The simpler, gentler products are free from parabens, sulphates and dyes and are hypoallergenic with more than 90% naturally derived ingredients.

The relaunch has not only reformulated existing products, but also sees the introduction of revolutionary technology and scientific expertise in baby skincare. The new JOHNSON’S® CottontouchTM range is specially designed for newborns’ sensitive skin. The ultra-light, and perfectly pH balanced wash and lotion are made with real cotton and enhance an ultra-gentle touch. The products use purposeful ingredients, and no parabens, phthalates or sulphates. The CottontouchTM fragrance was tested worldwide and has been scientifically proven to elevate the emotional bond between parent and baby, for a less stressful bath time, assisting with infant development and emotional growth.

Senior Director, Global Scientific Engagement at Johnson & Johnson Consumer, David Mays: “We have always put parents at the heart of our brand. For this monumental relaunch, we have really listened to parents to truly understand exactly what they need from their skincare products. As a brand, we are committed to rigorous testing and have worked tirelessly with scientists, paediatricians and dermatologists to create products as gentle as we want the world to be. Johnson & Johnson has pioneered the science in baby skincare for 125 years and we’re very proud of this heritage. So, we are thrilled to be able to offer families the opportunity to try the entire range and know they are giving their baby the best care.”

New Ages and Stages icons help parents easily distinguish between the products. All the new products have been specifically designed to fit into four categories caring for newborns straight from birth, active babies on the move, independent toddlers and not forgetting the iconic, loved classics.

Newborn: designed to celebrate bonding and encourage the feeling of security between parent and child with the introduction of CottontouchTM.

Active Baby: specifically created for little ones on the move to aid discovery and exploration. The Bedtime range with Natural CalmTM aroma can be used as part of a clinically proven routine to help baby to fall asleep faster and stay asleep for longer.

Toddler+: for the independent toddlers, the new range is designed with both parents and children at the core, with fun packaging and new characters and detangling and strengthening ingredients to make bath time easier for parents.

Originals: the scent that is truly associated with baby, a range can’t be forgotten, the Originals have also been reformulated to remove dyes and unwanted ingredients that don’t benefit baby, but still retaining their iconic scent and performance.

The new JOHNSON’S® range can be found in major retailers across UK and Ireland including ASDA, Boots, and Tesco now.

Notes to editors:

Johnson & Johnson Ltd has been an Alliance Partner with the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) since 2004, and is proud to support midwives in their work to care for mothers and newborn babies. Together, JOHNSON’S® and the RCM have developed information to help pregnant women and new families.

As a result of this Alliance Partnership, certain JOHNSON’S® products now have a ‘Supported by RCM’ logo on pack. The RCM believes that the research and science behind the JOHNSON’S® products which have the RCM logo is strong and evidence-based, although the RCM does not endorse any specific products or brands.

JOHNSON’S® baby skincare products have been specifically formulated for baby’s delicate skin, and robustly tested to ensure they are mild, gentle and effective. As a result, the RCM has chosen to support specific JOHNSON’S® products so parents can feel confident in choosing to use JOHNSON’S® products for their baby, if they choose to do so.

The delicious chocolate fruit and veg are handmade in Somerset and created using Choc on Choc’s patented production method that layers chocolate on top of chocolate, allowing its master chocolatiers to produce incredibly lifelike creations in any design imaginable.

Choc on Choc’s Mini Woodland Trio (RRP: £14.00), featuring a very debonair rabbit, squirrel and hedgehog, will also be available to purchase from the Selfridges Pop-Up. The trio are carefully handcrafted from the finest Belgian milk chocolate and make the perfect gift to take home on the day, ideal for any Beatrix Potter enthusiasts.

A single punnet containing five fruit and veg chocolates will be priced at £9.99 and available from the Choc on Choc fruit and veg patch Pop-Up in the Selfridges Foodhall from 11th – 23rd March 2019.
