I'm an artist, illustrator, maker, Mummy of two lovely kids with a love of stories, books and all things vintage.

I started my shop when my artwork turned to illustration and making as my main artform and Etsy provided the perfect platform for me to get my designs out there for people worldwide to see.
My work starts life as illustrations telling all kinds of Small Stories that evolve into objects for your enjoyment.
I make layered, hand painted wooden brooches (or wearable artworks) in editions of 100. I laser cut and etch the various parts before hand painting and piecing together into finished brooches.
I turn my illustrations into tea towel designs that are screen printed onto fair-trade cotton. I design some of my tea towels with dual use, so they can also be cut out and turned into decorative cushions to brighten up any space.
I hand screen print baby apparel onto colourful fair-trade cotton items. The designs are cured on so the garments can be machine washed without fading.
I use laser etching techniques to make hanging decorative pieces for the home. I also offer to personalise some of those decorations with names and dates for customers.
I believe in my work being of the highest quality and use the most environmental and fairly traded materials
My work all begins with a story, whether existing or told to me by my kids or a story I make up to explain things to my kids. I hope you enjoy passing on and making up your own stories inspired by my work.
