About stuARTconcepts

On Etsy since 2014

Architect to teacher to card designer - life is a (bi)cycle.

When I was studying architecture at university, I was involved with a handcraft cooperative selling the mobiles I made. This was very rewarding and I enjoyed both the creating and the selling aspects.

Having completed many years as an architect, I'm now an English as a second language teacher which gives me a lot more spare time.

Recently I've been designing cards for friends. One I designed for my leaving students was seen by my new employer and she commissioned me to design a few cards. This has led to a new creative enthusiasm to where I've decided to sell them online. I also have been designing some logos.

I believe in using as many environmentally friendly products as possible, but not exclusively. You will often see me riding my bicycle or walking around the city looking for new ideas or buying materials.

My inspirations come from things I see around me, particularly in Sydney, Australia. The pictures I've collected from over 1300km of walking the Sydney area often become part of a new card idea. Patterns and textures are also an inspiration.

If you see something you like but would like it customised, I would be happy to chat with you.

A cardboard insert is put in the envelope to minimize the chance of bending. The outside of the envelope is stamped "PLEASE DO NOT BEND." Thus I don't usually refund for damaged in transit items.
