Inspiring creativity. Founded by Olivia Triggs in 2007, Breed is a London-based creative agency representing a select but high-impact coterie of talents. The agency currently nurtures the work of 15 exciting artists, illustrators and photographers, each of whom has their own distinct style and unique perspective.
Breed prides itself not only on the vision and variety of its artists but also on the lasting role it plays in nurturing their talent, supporting their creative goals and creating opportunities to extend the scope of their practice.
With a refreshingly straightforward, hands-on approach, a culturally aware outlook and a spirited attitude, Breed London is the UK’s go-to agency for original art, photography and illustration.
Petra Börner grew up in Sweden with artistic ambition, drawing inspiration from her great grandfather- an entrepreneur, painter & photographer. Being from a family of doctors, her first commission was illustrating medical journals.
Having gained skills assisting illustrators in the early 90’s, an urge to engage with art in new mediums brought her to London to study fashion at Central St Martins. She started getting commissioned by design-led publications like Elle & Vogue.
She assisted Sherald Lamden, an eye opening time bridging art, music & fashion. She realised her real passion was in art, exhibitions followed.
With entrepreneurial drive she created fashion & accessory brands in early 2000, later turning her attention to paper goods and creating award- winning illustrations. Her signature cut paper artwork, appreciated for the analogue quality, now feature in collaborations with the Kew Gardens, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany’s.
