Illustrated Bird Pun Cards

About me

Colourful puns and alphabets designed with mischief in mind.

I am a self-taught artist based in sunny Worthing. I work on the top floor of a shared studio, a stone’s throw from the sea, which I can actually see from my desk! My range of nature inspired gifts began in 2013 and is still evolving, with new designs and products being added seasonally.

Having grown up on a farm I spent hours exploring the forests and wildlife surrounding me, and this is a huge inspiration to my work. Having originally studied English Literature, I love to play with language and communicate with people through my illustration. The double meanings of my fun pun range do just that - they grab people’s attention, raise a smile and sometimes an eyebrow or two!’

From Idea to Gift Collection

My creative approach to product design.

My product and pun ideas begin life in my sketchbook, as scribbles and colour swatches. Following more research, my designs are developed using watercolour paint and crayon, followed by digital artworking to create the finished composition. I have developed a warm and characterful style with hand rendered textures and wonky lines, coupled with hand drawn typography to complete each design.

My paper goods and gifts are produced entirely in the UK to a very high standard, and I work closely with my manufacturers to ensure that the striking colours of each design are consistently reproduced. The bird pun charts have a popular following online and in store, and I am currently developing additional products to add to the collection.

I use a local business for my order fulfilment which has enabled me to focus far more on designing new products for my store, along with illustration commissions for clients such as children's publishers, charities and museums.

    "Fantastic print, really quirky, was a Christmas present and arrived very promptly. Seller was also really helpful and replied promptly to my enquiry about shipping date. I will be ordering the other prints in the range in the future as they will make a lovely collection on our wall! It seems like it will be easy to find a frame for it as it is a regular size."
