Smirky's Story

Peter studied illustration at college.

He has always loved drawing pictures, telling stories and making things from an early age. Peter particularly likes putting narrative elements into his illustrations so people can form their own stories. He is heavily influenced by folktales, myths and legends and inspired by art and design from the 60's and 70's particularly children's illustration.

Sarah studied photography at college.

She has always loved nature and would live in a tree house if she could. Sarah has a passion for making all things crafty and also loves children's illustration and design from the 60's and 70's.

We are passionate about art and making it forms the centre of our lives. Our Etsy shop provides us with the perfect place to share and explore our ideas and influences.
