The Ink House, a little shop on the corner of the web...

... Trying to think of a name that suited my little business wasn't easy. I have always had an absolute fascination with old, historical, decaying buildings & houses, each one with their own stories to tell. So I went with a name that best described my illustration work and medium at the time, and so the "The Ink House" was born.
It's been many years now since I first started drawing buildings and houses with my black ink pens, but the desire to draw little houses hasn't ceased!

Art has always been a massive part of my life from a very early age, so after high school I studied Graphic Design at university. What followed was a career in the graphic design and illustration, predominately - stationery, paper party, greeting cards and gift wrap.

In 2011 I left my role as a senior designer to start my family. I am now lucky to be mum to two adorable girls. Aside being a Mum, I work as a freelance Illustrator and Designer from my home studio. I have worked in many different areas - home decor, children's products/toys, wedding/party stationery, branding, packaging, book illustrations - to name a few. In 2016, I will be venturing into other new areas and exciting projects.

The Ink House is still a reflection of my interests and where I am in my life right now. I currently sell Nursery and Children's wall art prints of my original illustrations.
I print and package all my own products using archival quality paper stock and inks, and take the upmost care in making sure I deliver a quality product in perfect condition.

Hopefully I will find more time to keep adding to my little shop, and it will continue to be a fun, creative outlet for me. I am forever grateful to my wonderful customers for allowing me to do what I love to do!

I do my best to pack items so they arrive in mint condition. Unfortunately the postal service doesn't always take the greatest of care when delivering items. If your item arrives damaged please let me know.

I have endeavoured to make all images represented in my Etsy shop as close to the print colours as possible, however there could be a slight variation as some computer monitors depict colours differently.
