Hello and thanks for dropping by. My name is Bernadette Sipkes and I started this etsy store (way back in 2005!) so that I could share my passion for hand crafted, colorful and affordable, art and stationery. I also love designing (and using) stickers for planners (I own an Erin Condren, Midori and Kikki K.) All my work start off as hand drawn line art and my drawing tool of choice is the humble pigment ink graphic pen. I am inspired by nature (I live in New Zealand after all!) and, Scandinavian & Japanese aesthetics.
I live and work under one roof (of a little wooden bungalow) in the city of Auckland, New Zealand with my 8 year old daughter, husband and a cheeky Birman cat called, Sheba.
