I create sumptuous garments & accessories using free machine embroidery & teach a wide range of specialist sewing classes.
Design and create handmade greetings cards and bespoke wedding stationery which incorporate my own photography and illustration.
I am an abstract mixed media painter, creating small and large works on canvas, panel and paper.
My paintings hold my fears, my love and my dreams–a conversation between shape and line, insular and enmeshed, strident and strong, floating alone in silence or teetering on the edge. In a careful balance, my paintings represent relationships past and present as I maneuver a new world.
Give me a charcoal line and I will show you my heart’s story…
Moody Monday debuted to critical acclaim in 2014, led by designer and creative director Eliza Kesuma.
After graduating with a degree in Textiles & Design from Heriot-Watt University, Eliza undertook multiple freelance projects and work experience opportunities with notable design companies. In 2008, a major interiors company recruited her as part of their communication and design team.
Noticing a niche in the interiors market for distinctive designs that challenged traditional creative concepts, Eliza began developing a signature style that was innovative, stylish and luxurious. By embracing individuality, she strives to subvert people’s expectations of interior design with her highly original and provocative collections.
Moody Monday’s core philosophy that beauty can come from the unlikeliest of places underpins each design, product and project Eliza creates. Her ‘Secret Music Collection’, inspired by the hidden inner workings of an abandoned musical organ, produced exquisitely compelling designs that received widespread praise at exhibitions across the UK.
Along with a bespoke service that tailors design concepts to fit the specific needs of clients, Moody Monday welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with innovative interior companies, global brands and businesses.
