A Passion for Play
My name is Teri and I've been drawing for a long, long time. In fact I blackmailed my Nan into buying me a giant box of Crayola crayons (I was only about 4 years old) - there were silver and gold crayons in that box and I don't think I've ever stopped drawing.
In every aspect of life I've managed to use my creative side. Then things changed and I had a small child (who is no longer that small) and I decided that I would make my passion, my life and draw until I drop.
Here, at Playful Stories, I want to share with you my illustrations and I hope you like what is available in my shop.
Why Playful Stories?
The name reflects my style and also that each image tells a story.
All the items for sale are designed by me.
