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).

    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.
