About

Inspired by the great outdoors, trying new things and doing what makes you happy.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved to create things. I’d sit for hours at the dining table, painting and drawing to my heart’s content, making gifts and cards for family and friends. Never in a million years did I think I’d be able to do what I love for a living.

I started Helen Richmond Design in 2016 after quitting a job that made me miserable and ill. That summer, my husband, John, and I went on holiday to Costa Rica. One night, we were chatting about what I was going to do about going back to work. Believing any other alternative would be impossible, I said I’d take a few months out and then look for a job doing what I’d done previously. My husband turned to me and said: “Why don’t you do what you’ve always wanted to, and sell your own work? Just go for it!”. Earlier that day, we’d hiked up a volcano in the torrential rain. I felt invincible. So, when he asked this question, all I could think of was: “Why not?!”.

I did my first craft fair in 2016, selling hand-lettered chalkboards. I enjoyed making the chalkboards, but I really wanted to know how to design art prints and greetings cards. So, over the next 6 months, I taught myself how to use the fancy programmes you need to do that. One of the coolest things I learned was how to convert my original drawings and paintings into digital artwork.

At the heart of Helen Richmond Design is a passion for inspiring people to believe they can do anything they want and to try new and amazing things. My work is also inspired by my love of the outdoors and travelling to new and exciting places.
Most recently, I designed the stationery and decorations for our wedding. My wedding collection is available to order through my Etsy shop, including bespoke wedding invitations.

Every order puts a huge smile on my face, as do so many of the customers I have the pleasure of working with.
