About ChimpsTeaParty

On Etsy since 2012

Paper, scissors and glue!

Hi, I’m Pippa! I live in Bristol with my partner and little French Bulldog called Rothko. After growing up in Oxfordshire, I moved to Bristol to study illustration at uni. I loved the art scene, and the little community I live in full of independent businesses, so I stayed put!

Art, photography and making has always been my passion, and I particularly like the analogue, old-fashioned way of doing things. Starting with making walkmans and robots out of cardboard as a child, and then selling handmade sock monkeys and soft toys when I was still at school. I have progressed to cutting up photos, and glueing them together into pictures.

When reading old stories about the area I now live in, I found out that they used to hold actual chimps tea parties in my local football stadium to get a bigger crowd. The name seemed to fit with my love of animals, silliness and cake, so this led to the creation of Chimps Tea Party!

After university, i had a variety of unfulfilling jobs from waitressing, to data entry. I then started temping in a factory producing personalised greeting cards, followed by printing and framing canvas art. It made me realise how much I like to work with my hands rather than sitting at a desk. I worked full time for a few years, managing the design and production side of a personalised gift company, but now just do the freelance art working for them from home. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to put some time into my own etsy shop and design work. I’m in my 30’s now, so I thought if I don’t do it now, I never will!

My biggest sellers are my Twin Peaks inspired pin badges. I had been wanting to design a pin for a while, and I’m absolutely obsessed with Twin Peaks, so it seemed like the way to go. The next stage for my business is to work on some repeat pattern designs, as ii’ve always been interested in doing this (in my degree show at uni, i exhibited a dress that I had made out of fabric printed with my illustrations).

I love that I can now be creative every day, listen to my favourite 50’s music and podcasts while I work, and all with a doggie on my lap!

I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.
