Hi and welcome to my shop!
I don't just sell prints.
I help you capture memories.
I help you touch hearts and convey your love.
I help you bring joy and delight to your loved ones with beautiful keepsake art.

I create an array of different prints and wall art – from nursery decor to personalised wedding prints, quotes posters to fine art prints! I have an eclectic style and I love anything pretty so my shop contains lots of sparkles and florals as well a variety of different wall art and prints created from different influences in my life –my family and friends, my love of abstract art and flowers to the ocean and travel.
I have several professional printers at home (A4 and A3) so I print all my 11x14” and smaller non US based orders myself on lovely archival papers. For anything larger I use a professional printing company. For US based customers I find it better to use a printing company based in the US as this avoids any customs or postal delays! I have used both these professional printing companies for over 18 months and have a great relationship with both.
I usually paint all my paintings in my studio at home although I have been known to dabble with some watercolours next to the pool while on holiday! I scan and digitise all my paintings myself and then create the final image from which I create all my prints. Additionally I have also started exploring creating different home decor items with some of my designs and my art so hope you like them!

On Etsy since 2013

Finding inspiration everywhere...

I’m an artist and mum living in Poole in Dorset in a beautiful part of the UK.
Prior to having kids I was an Oracle software developer in London – a role I loved and still miss today! But as a mum I need a lot more flexibility with work so I can deal with the day to day shenanigans that having kids involves plus I wanted something I could focus on and pour all my creative ideas into - that is how Crafty Cow Design was born.
I have loved craft and making things since I was little during the Blue Peter days in the 80’s – I still remember making wooly pom poms using some cardboard cut outs after watching one episode.
I’ve been painting for around 25 years now – since my art A-Level. I find it very therapeutic and love losing myself in it and expressing myself. I feel especially inspired by the colours of the ocean and the constant tumbling of waves as well as the beach, sunsets by the sea and surfing as I see a lot of it in the harbour near where I live. A lot of my paintings have sea themes as I continue to explore this interest through different mediums. One of may favourites seascape painters is Scott Naismith - his paintings are truly stunning and inspiring.
My prints are inspired by life around me - my lovely children, my love of all things sparkly, watercolour textures and paint effects as well as my friends who continually inspire me with fun new ideas!
I am inspired by many painters – the famous as well as the less so. My favourite artists include Picasso, Kandinsky, Monet (of course!) and I also love the fauvist movement of the last century and ‘Pop art’ too. For me visiting the Saatchi gallery a few years ago was a real highlight and eye opener – it was just amazing what some very talented people can produce. So lots of inspiration from lots of areas!
I have 2 etsy shops : 'Crafty Cow Design' and 'That New Shop'; Check out my website : http://www.craftycowdesign.co.uk

Frequently asked questions
PRINT SIZES : Notes about Print Sizes and Largest Size I can make gold foil prints :

GOLD FOIL PRINTS :
The largest size I can make my gold foil prints a the moment is A4 - these are printed on a laser printer and mine prints up to an A4 size so this is the largest I can print them at the moment.

PRINT SIZES :
5x7", 8x10", 11x14" and 16x20" prints come with a small white border around the edge to allow you to frame your print with a mat. If you want your print to exclude this border please let me know in the 'Note to Crafty Cow Design' box at the checkout.

Do you sell framed prints?

I sell all all my prints UNFRAMED (unless otherwise stated) due to the following reasons :
- The risk of damage to the glass and frame during transit
- The much higher cost of postage to the customer
- The storage implications of having to store many different sized frames in different colours - as a small business I just don't have this much storage capacity available to me unfortunately
- My customers personal taste in frames and materials - some people prefer to have my prints framed professionally with high quality frames in their preferred colour with mounts while others prefer a standard shop bought frame and again as a small business it is impossible for me to cater for all tastes.

When will you ship my order?

This varies but here are some guidelines :
NON CUSTOMISED Prints : Larger and USA bound prints are usually shipped in 3-4 working days. Prints bound for everywhere else are usually shipped within 1-2 working days.
CUSTOMISED Prints : I will email a digital proof within 1-3 working days. Once you are happy I will process your print. For UK based orders this usually takes 1-2 working days and for larger prints and USA bound orders this usually takes 3-4 days.

I can usually ship faster but please email me prior to ordering if you have a specific date in mind by which you need your order. I can also offer priority shipping for most orders for an additional charge.

**If you need your order by a certain date please email me PRIOR to ordering.

My item hasn't arrived - what do I do?

Please let me know within 4 months of placing your order if your item hasn't arrived as if too much time has passed it may be impossible for me to investigate further.
When an item doesn't arrive I will usually offer to send a replacement item to you. This offer of a replacement will be valid for 30 days from the date of my offer message.

How do you package your prints?

Prints are packaged in a cello sleeves with grey-board and a hard-backed envelope.
I am phasing out plastic cello sleeves and replacing them with biodegradable cornstarch ones. If you are allergic or have any issues with corn or any materials in the manufacture of cornstarch cello sleeves please let me know prior to ordering.
If you wish to return your print please package it unused and undamaged in the same way that you received it. You will be responsible for the return postage cost. If you reside outside the UK please post the print and mark the customs form as a returned item. If you fail to do this there will be a customs charge which I will have to deduct from your refund. Once I have received your print I will process the refund.

Do you send a proof before printing?

If your order is personalised in any way then yes I send one proof per order via etsy mail and email and I don't print your order until you are happy with the proof and confirm. If you would like me to create multiple proofs for you so that you can pick the one you want then please contact me prior to ordering so I can create a custom order for you to account for the additional design time - the creation of each proof will be chargeable by the hour.
Please be aware that once I have sent a proof to you you can still cancel your order however I will charge for the time spent on your proof on a half hourly basis so you will receive a refund minus any time spent on your proof.

How do I add personalisation?

If your item is personalised in any way then please fill in all the drop down boxes on the order form and put in any additional details in the 'Note to seller' section at the checkout (e.g. name/date/message etc).
Please be aware that once I have sent a proof to you you can still cancel your order however I will charge for the time spent on your proof on a half hourly basis so you will receive a refund minus any time spent on your proof.

What are your other policies?

- Only one discount may be used per order : if I give you a discount please don't also use a coupon code on the order.
- Digital Downloads : as these are delivered electronically these items are non refundable and can't be 'returned'. Personalised files come with 1 change, any further changes may be subject to further design charges. If you have purchased a digital item then the printing of the item is your responsibility - you need to ensure the printer you use is using the correct paper/settings.
- Print sizes - when framing please purchase a mount/mat or frame where the 'picture size' is the size of your print so that the image on the print is fully visible. If you use a smaller frame or mount then the full image may not be visible.

Can I change the colour of my print?

I certainly try and accommodate my customers needs as much as possible as I want you to be absolutely happy with your order. I can change various aspects of my prints such as colour, font size etc for a nominal charge.

I just noticed my shipping address is wrong - can I change it?

Yes that's no problem at all as long as I haven't already shipped your order. Please email me via etsy with the new delivery details. If I have shipped your order then I'm no longer able to change the address as your item is being processed by the postal system and no longer in my care.
If you wish to return your print and you reside outside the UK please post the print back to me and mark the customs form as a returned item. If you fail to do this sadly there will be a customs charge which I will have to deduct from your refund.
