Just gorgeous! My brooch is so pretty and beautifully made(I'm a jeweller so I'm fussy about that sort of thing). The packaging is innovative and fun, super friendly seller and I can't wait to buy something else.
Illustrator makes beautiful bags and bonkers brooches.
I am an illustrator. I studied ceramics at art school, I worked for years in catering - selling olives and running my own cafe, and now I'm here! Bringing up my son and running the Strange Bird Design Emporium (er... ok... small studio business)
I started this shop a couple of years ago selling my illustrations from a book I'd written called 'One Aardvark'. I now seem to be making bags! Stylish, one -off digitally printed, vintage lined, linen bags which can be found in my brand new shop 'Modello Mondo'.
Also I have recently discovered shrink plastic, which is the perfect vehicle for my new love of mixing up vintage illustrations & photos with my own drawings.
AND I'm also making Creature Kits! A box filled with everything you need to make your own stuffed creatures! These will be in the shop soon!
Oh yes... and I do hand draw and digitally produce illustrations!
My 5 year old is the driving force behind my business! I would love to show him that doing something you enjoy with your life is the most important thing, keep plugging away and it will work! (fingers crossed).
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, Illustaror, Photographer, Promoter
I draw, I write, I make bags. I love olives and cakes and my life in the Northern town of Lancaster, nuzzled just below the glorious Lake District of Northern England.
