I am an artist and illustrator living and working in rural South Shropshire taking inspiration from all that is here. I love to paint and draw adding to the ranges throughout the year. All my designs are created by hand, I am not a computer artist.

My business started by publishing my work onto greeting cards, an affordable way to buy my art. It has evolved by adding quality products that has my artwork applied, this involves lots of sampling until I am happy with the reproduction and quality.

Supporting other local business is very important to me, my cards are printed just eight miles from my studio and screen printing just twelve miles away over the border in Wales. The range of cushion covers and canvas bags are all printed in my studio, mugs and placemats made in the UK.

By networking with other rural businesses we are able to provide enough parcels for a courier to collect in our area every day, this is a franchise to a national company employing local people. Smaller items are always sent First Class through the Royal Mail, we use franked mail which gives us priority as a business user.
