An eclectic collection of prints, stationery, cards, hand painted signs, gifts & more by Sammy
Originally from a small village in County Durham in the North East of England, I moved to Reading in 2012 to pursue my career as a Graphic Designer, and now live in rural Berkshire with my husband and cat.
I’m a freelance graphic designer, and started my shop, Pumpkins and Pinecones off the back of needing a space to create illustrations, prints and gifts which I thought people would love for their homes as much as I love creating them.
I feel I have a unique ability to weave my passion for illustration and hand rendered typography through to the more traditional graphic design work, giving my work its own unique style.
I use hand crafted image making methods, alongside digital design and weave these two areas together seamlessly to complement each other.
In my spare time you’ll find me hunting for vintage treasures, painting, completing beautifully crafted traditional signwriting pieces, learning some new craft, or adding to my large and ever-growing taxidermy collection.
