About

.. And this is where the magic happens ..

I have always loved illustrated children's books, and trying to draw my own cartoons since I was in primary school, but never quite developed a style that worked for me.

After working part-time and having a career-break to raise my daughter I set up a handcrafted greetings card business at home ...

Then, returning to part-time work in a primary school, I found that the children loved my sketches and l decided to switch greetings cards for badge & keyring creation, adorned with my cartoon designs.

'The You Tree' was born (or 'sown'?!), from the idea of adding my little cartoon characters to a personalised family tree "portrait" compilation, and now creates unique and endearing prints, on top quality paper and using professional quality printing.

All original images have been individually hand-drawn by myself (hence the consistent syle), then scanned onto a computer, and digitally coloured by myself, using a graphics package.

The attention to detail is what I love about this artwork, which is why I have decided to make it personalisable. Not only can I add your family name and number of characters to the image for you, but characters can also symbolise each family member, in hair-style and fashion including facial hair and glasses!

Items of meaning to a family can hide in the branches- e.g. your daughter's favourite teddy can be replicated closely from a photo and sat in the top of the tree; or a dad's cherished road bicycle can lean against the trunk; or even a son could be proudly wearing his favourite footy team's kit … The world is your oyster, as they say …!

Wheelchair-users can also be symbolised, as well as skin colour being adaptable, and pets (as far as possible!) so that everyone one can be included in 'The You Tree'.

I believe this is what makes these pieces of art so special ... and I hope you will agree.

I hope you will be thrilled with your unique 'You Tree'. These prints are all custom made just for you, but unfortunately once printed, alterations cannot be made.

Please check therefore, all correspondences with us VERY closely- especially for spelling mistakes!

I endeavour to replicate items and characters from photos as closely as possible, while still sticking to my particular cartoon-styling. As the illustrations originate from my own hand drawn sketches, some slight variances or imperfections may occur, and I may be limited by the quality of any photos supplied.

In the unlikely event that your 'You Tree' does not arrive or arrives in a less than perfect physical state, regarding condition of paper, printing or mounting, then please contact me as soon as possible, so that I can a arrange a refund or replacement.

I accept Etsy Direct checkout, Paypal and major credit cards through Paypal (no Paypal account needed).

Creation of your 'You Tree' can only begin, once funds are fully cleared and all order details have been confirmed.

Additional policies and FAQs
I am unfortunately unable to include item images that are owned by other parties, due to Copyright reasons (eg Disney Characters) but hope to hint at particular interests in others ways wherever possible.

I prefer not to adjust body shape, mainly because my style of characters look less effective with realistic shaping, but also so as to avoid possible insult of recipients, by accident! I do require rough height information for characters, however, to ensure proportionate representation of couples, etc.
