About

After a great deal of time away from being creative I have finally taken the plunge to start designing again & opening an Etsy shop to showcase my greeting card collection.

I gained a degree in Surface Pattern Design fifteen years ago and due to one thing & another I drifted away from doing what I enjoy the most - drawing & designing.
The opportunity to open an Etsy shop came about when I was on maternity leave with my second child & I went for it, with a little help from other Etsy sellers. (Thank you again Caroline - Caroline Rose Art). Making the most of every hour in the day I like to draw naive, stylized images that can be used to create greeting cards & prints.

(Thank you again Caroline - Caroline Rose Art). Making the most of every hour in the day I like to draw naive, stylized images that can be used to create greeting cards & prints.

I have always been lucky enough to be surrounded by creative people, as my father is an artist whose work has adorned the family home & has been exhibited nationwide. My mother creates amazingly detailed embroideries & both have been a source of inspiration.

I work in all sorts of hand-drawn media, using photoshop for scanning images, colouring & designing. Finally adding decorative embellishments to some of the cards.

I like soft rounded shapes and fluid lines & I'm drawn to colourful & child like images.

I would eventually like to have my designs printed onto fabric to make accessories for children, but one step at a time.

I am happy to be contacted by anyone in the UK who would like to arrange local pick up, please email me at Littlenadescards [!at] hotmail.co.uk

Thank you for visiting & I hope you will drop by again.
