This is my second blog post in a week, that must be a record! I have been busy with week with some accounting, designing, fulfilling online orders and liaising with some of my lovely customers. The majority of my business has come to a halt due to Covid-19 but I am certainly working hard in the background, trying to make the most of the situation as well as letting it inspire me creatively.
All of the cards below are available to purchase on my Etsy shop as well as my Thortful profile. Both of these platforms ship orders worldwide, so you can reach your loved ones both near and far! I have had some fun creating these designs. If you’re not able to leave the house at the moment or buy a stamp – I can send your card to the recipient at no extra cost when purchasing on my Etsy shop. Simply fill in the message box when you add the item to your basket and I will hand write your chosen greeting. Thortful offer this service as well!
I have 15% off orders over £30 during April 2020. This discount will be applied at the checkout.

Wishing you all a peaceful weekend.
I love creating illustrations based on places, and working on this Thaxted project was no exception. This historic and beautiful village is in Essex, and is home to many quaint and beautiful buildings. I supply Gifted, a gorgeous gift shop in the heart of the village, and after a conversation at a recent trade fair I was asked to create an illustration that we could apply to a number of products. Their outlet features in the bottom left of the design below, and is currently a lovely red colour as per the image!
Thaxted is known for Morris Dancing festivals so of course some dancers had to feature on the design, as did Dick Turpin’s Cottage, the house that Gustav Holst lived in for a number of years in the 1900s and well as John Webb’s windmill, that can be found just outside of the village.
I have included a number of images of the products below. Get in touch if you would like to discuss a project for your location!
I have been collaborating with the RNLI since 2013, when I developed art work for their summer 2014 product collection. That was one of my favourite projects to date, and I was thrilled that the range was a big success for them. Some of the range can be seen below. I really like illustrating fish. This contemporary and fresh colour palette made for a light and bright set of products.
I have worked on a few projects for them since, including creating artwork for a family calendar, and a diary. The most recent design is this one (below). The artwork is available in a pack of Christmas cards. They can be bought from RNLI shops and via their catalogue now.
