In the mix with Mengsel

Luzelle studied jewellery design at Cape Town's University of Technology. After relocating to London, England, she worked for a Finnish textile designer, completed a course in printmaking and started her own business, Mengsel.

Mengsel means "mixture" in Luzelle's native Afrikaans language and is a reference to her beloved bold colours used in her hand pulled limited edition silkscreen prints.

Luzelle prints all of her work in small editions using traditional silkscreen printing methods. She works from a little studio inside an old schoolhouse next to London's beautiful Kew Gardens and her home in South West London. Prints are signed, dated and numbered by the artist.

Abode, Mengsel's new collaboration with Magpie, features artist Luzelle van der Westhuizen's illustrations of 4 quirky animals captured in their natural habitats.

Inspired by geometric and hand-drawn patterns, as well as African and Scandinavian design, Mengsel's prints have a simplicity of shape but a complexity of character.

The Mengsel range also features exclusively designed babywear and homewares. All designs are by Luzelle van der Westhuizen.
