“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” Einstein
Happen-upon is a place for the curious, a place to potter a place to find inspiration.
Started in 2008, and based in the UK (Leeds to be precise). It ‘s aim is to be a digital scrapbook for all the interesting recipes, ingredients, places, ideas, objects, trends floating around.
After studying History of Design I worked in advertising before settling into design both on and offline, running a succesful design and digital agency, now I am a freelance consultant (and general plate spinner). I have always been passionate about food and love to go to places that offer me nourishment of the body, mind and soul. If you want to be nourished then Happen upon is the place for you.
I also produce my own ceramics very much influenced by what I blog about. I have published a book about soup which was illustrated with photographs of my ceramics (more about that later) I am particularly fond of Middle Eastern, European and Southern Indian cookery. Favourite food is Rose prosecco jelly with raspberries or maybe the other extreme a lentil soup.
The next stage will be an online shop so all these things can be bought and then maybe an offline shop/ gallery with cafe so all these things can be viewed, touched, admired and consumed.
I would love to hear from you if you are a foodie, a designer, an artist, a foodie, a traveller or just curious, until then enjoy reading the blog.
