My beautiful picture arrived promptly, and a super special touch was the envelope decoration - now framed and hung above the umbrellas in my hallway, it makes me smile whenever I leave the house (rain or shine!) Thank you Heidi x

Personalised gifts for a one-of-a-kind experience
I'm Heidi, a British-Finnish freelance illustrator living in Cambridge, UK. I gained a BA (Hons) in Illustration at Kent Institute of Art & Design in 2007 and opened my Etsy shop shortly after. I used to work for Etsy as their UK Social Media & Blog Coordinator, and now I'm a Small Business Development Consultant at Digibloom.co, so I help small businesses (such as those selling on Etsy!) to start up.
I work using both digital & traditional methods of illustration, producing original art, altered journals, greeting card designs, book/magazine illustrations, custom gifts & hand-painted ceramics.
I welcome enquiries via 'convo' message if you're interested in a custom/personalised piece as I love working with customers to create something very special!
What makes me tick, and what makes me tock:
Drawing, found objects, hand drawn typography, eavesdropping, cartography, riding on trains in the rain, astronomy, festivals, folktales, Victorian literature, old Penguin book covers, Haiku writing.
Mint chocolate, burglars, things that reduce in size while increasing in price, ugly fonts, pigeons, public speaking, eating meat, not having tea.
My work has been featured in the lovely books "I Love Stationery" by Charlotte Rivers, & "1000 Handmade Greetings" by McFadden & Baskin. Also I've been featured on The Guardian website, in Guardian Observer newspaper, and the magazines Stylist, Easy Living, UK Handmade, Agenda, Mankind, and Underground Art School.
I've exhibited in London and Tokyo for Moleskine, and various other shows around the UK and USA.
For updates, please visit the links (to the right) for my Facebook page, Twitter, and blog. If you managed to read this far, then I must thank you for your patience and awesomeness! X
Everything From Initial Ideas To The Banter Over The Post Office Counter.
I'm a freelance illustrator creating artwork from my Cambridge nest.
