Light Relief in a Serious World. Gifts to bring a chuckle and art to make a house a home.
Having worked as a fashion designer & illustrator for many years for recognised brands I wanted to make my own mark. I had a clothing brand 'Slush' which sold in Topshop & worldwide while also freelancing as a graphic designer. I relocated leaving London, had a daughter and studied Illustration at Manchester School of Art. Once again reevaluating my career I became drawn to reality and less idealism. I would sketch on location and create lifestyle drawings of people in coffee houses. As I gained recognition I began tagging them with 'Cherie did this'.
Throughout this time I was running a shop in my home town and enjoyed chatting with people. I started to understand what the best gifts were and began designing my own.
Influenced by my fashion background and my collection of kitsch & vintage memorabilia I've hoarded over the years. Always looking to put a twist on something recognizable, combining it with a function ..be it a print, pencil case, wash bag or tea towel. I love the idea of gifts being Smile Makers.
Cherie did this is constantly evolving and I love to hear your feedback and comments. The connection with my customers is very important to me. It is why I do what I do.
Award-winning Artist with a BTEC & Degree in Fashion and an MA in Illustration
The design process starts with something that I'm into ... be it the sausage rolls ( I love dachshunds on skateboards) or the fluffy every cloud making kits which are a crafters delight ! My mind is like a butterfly constantly being pulled by a new exciting concept. I always have a new design up my sleeve. Influenced by interior designers, artists and lifestyle my mind is buzzing and I rarely switch off which is why I'm always writing Slow Down or Do Less on my Prints. The Cloud Kits are a good way of calming busy minds like mine. My work is also my play so I have fun with what I do. My goal is not to take life too seriously.
Sustainability is very important to me having worked in the fashion industry for many years, whenever possible my products are made locally using the best materials & skills available.
