Colourful and cheerful creations, produced as ethically as possible, and created to brighten up your home and make you smile...

Thank you for visiting Comfy Marmalade! My name is Karen and I'm a digital illustrator; I create environmentally friendly greetings cards, art prints and other products designed to brighten up your home on even the darkest of days.

I live with my husband, two children and our dog in a village in the beautiful lower Pennine hills in south Lancashire, England. We live in an old Victorian house - high ceilings, big windows, lots of character, eats money... I'm a fan of quirky and hand-crafted home décor items, and all things vintage and retro, especially mid-century pieces. I also love buying unique items from small creative businesses and shops. You can see more of our home on Instagram.

I've had no formal training at all, over and above a very generous friend, Caroline from Five Red Hens, teaching me all she knows about Illustrator. I tend to sketch and faff about with my ideas on paper before transforming them electronically. I have a tendency towards bright, colourful and whimsical designs, with a retro-inspired bent. I find that simple is best in terms of design, but I can go a little wild colour-wise! I usually work in my craft room (I know - how lucky?!) or at our living room table overlooking the rolling hillside opposite, dog snoring on the sofa, coffee limited to three a day (if I can manage it...)

Each of my designs is unique and fun, and product quality is mega important to me, as is trying to make my products and packaging as eco-friendly as possible. At the moment I produce greetings cards and art prints, but I'm working on a number of new lines and ideas which I plan to launch soon…

I do hope you can find something here that tugs at your heartstrings - it's been a pleasure designing each and every one of them. I add new work on a fairly regular basis, so do keep checking back. Thank you so much for dropping by! Karen x

PS why the name Comfy Marmalade? Because I love marmalade, I love the colour orange, and 'comfy' is a word that I use regularly to describe our home. And Comfy seems to go well with Marmalade somehow...

    Hello! I'm Karen. I love bright colours (especially orange), sunshine, charity shops and instant coffee. I work from my craft room, aka Comfy Marmalade HQ, in our drafty Victorian home in the beautiful Pennine hills. Thanks for stopping by! xx
