Bringing you sunshine, happy memories and smiles with personalised hand drawn illustrations and whimsical prints.
Hello and welcome to PlumGinger Art, thank you so much for opening the door to my little shop, please make yourself comfortable, have a cup of tea and take a look at what I do.
I'm Sarah and I live and work in County Durham with my husband, two wonderful daughters, a slightly grumpy miniature schnauzer called Maggie and a rather plump guinea pig named Bob.
PlumGinger Art is just the place if you are looking for vintage yet contemporary hand drawn illustrations, prints or that more personal commissioned piece that means something special to you and/or your family.
Here I hope you will discover something that little bit different, something that will connect with you in some way and brighten the day of whoever you choose to receive it whether that is yourself or a friend.
The images I love to draw are inspired by my happy memories, the simplicity and innocence remembered from childhood, my childrens very vivid imaginations and a love of books, poetry and quotations.
I also take inspiration from you as I love to undertake bespoke work for that more personal touch, working with you I aim to create an illustration or family portrait that is as individual as you are, as Dr Seuss so rightly said, ' Today you are you that is truer than true, there is no one alive who is youer than you! '
All of my work is hand drawn by me on 300gsm hot press (smooth) watercolour paper using pencils, fine liners, and because I prefer the clean lines of black and white I only add a hint of colour using watercolours. I also like to cut my illustrations out as I feel this adds an extra dimension to some of my work giving a 3D effect.
My original illustrations are produced as prints here in the UK using only the highest quality materials.
I believe that my customers are the most important part of PlumGinger Art and would like to thank you for taking a moment to take a look around I hope you love what you see and that it brings you sunshine, happy memories and smiles.
