Just a card @justacard campaign is set up to encourage people to buy and support independent designer/makers like myself. every item that is purchased big or small makes us all do a little dance as every sales makes a difference.
this week is #justacardweek and i have decided to join in. today is about you so here i am(a rare) picture of myself. i have always been creative from a young age. i went to college to study photography with a printmaking elective. being in the darkroom was one of the best places to work, i loved creating imagery. i also studied a level textiles of an evening. i went on to university and graduated with a degree in printed textiles & surface pattern design. i was welcomed into the surface pattern design world. i specialised in wallpaper design and went on to win competitions which took my designs further into the design world. i amongst others was chosen to represent ' the best of british talent' with international wallpaper company graham & brown. my wallpaper 'fossil leaf' was sold internationally. i also have designed for the likes of john lewis and papercrafter magazine. i have designed wallpapers for private customers and sold and licensed designs to companies. during this time i lived in london till in 2015 i moved back up north to start a family. now a mum to my three year old toddler i have launched a greetings cards business where i also sell prints. i have now started stocking them in independent shops. please support this wonderful campaign and buy from an independent shops or maker this week #justacard #justacardweek #surfacepatterndesign #surfacepatterndesigner #makerssupportingmakers #makersgonnamake #printandpattern #illustration #printmaking #figandhue #craftcircle

Blue floral square - inspired by photography cyanotypes. i studied fine art photography in college. being in the darkroom was one of the most relaxing places to work. .

Morning everyone 🌱 i am getting a little closer to items being up on my website. for the meantime i will keep sharing images for you on here.
this is another popular happy birthday card. the shade of green is one of my favourites and definitely giving me the ideas to do some more botanical designs. .
