Swirly Soph - animal art prints and embroidered sweaters by Sophie Huddlestone & Country Swirls in the U.K.

Hi I'm Artist Sophie Huddlestone,

Thanks for swirling by, literature certainly isn’t easy with my dyslexia & Irlen Syndrome, but creativity is.

My TikTok is @swirlysoph

My art studio is in Leicestershire England and I grab my paint brush in-between volunteer work and looking after the kids, dogs & fish and not forgetting the hubby.

More hand painted original artworks are on bargains site and my artists website for commissions and more expensive paintings is

Hubby & I made the Country Swirls sweaters, once gone there will not be any more, as they were a stop gap while I was Knee high in toddler years, unable to paint as often. The clothing and bags can be viewed in more detail at but to purchase these sweaters you’d need to come back on to Etsy.

    I started selling my paintings instead of hiding them away in draws. I’m still surprised by how popular it’s become, so I’m trying out Etsy. Quite shy, a bit of a happy recluse. Painting and designing embroidery is very therapeutic too, thank you.

    We started 'Country Swirls' in November 2015, I already have over 30 years experience in clothing & embroidery manufacturing. I just thought my wife Sophie's art works are so lovely that they would look great on sweatshirts & gifts too.
