Anne was here and she left a doodle for you.

Once upon a time there was a little girl named Anne who loved to doodle. At school she would get in trouble for doodling in the margins of her homework. She still does this today at work, but doesn't get in trouble for it anymore! Okay, you got me, that girl is me.

I thrive on infusing personality into my art, whether it be in the sideways glance of a critter or exaggerating the imperfections of a flower. I started my career as an interior designer, became a graphic designer and then a stationery designer. I learned invaluable lessons along the way and feel blessed to have recently discovered my true passion is illustration and surface pattern design. I'm officially obsessed!

I love the fact that we can't run out of creativity. The more we design, the better and more innovative we get!

    Hi, I'm Midji. I mostly try to distract Anne from her work. I am good at playing fetch and farting. Sometimes Anne doodles me. You might find clip art of me in our shop.
