About AccidentalVixPrints

On Etsy since 2018

Created out of an accident

I graduated with an interior architecture and design degree in 2005 and continue to do it as my day job, specialising in retail design. I'm originally from a small village in Yorkshire, and after several stops in London moved back in 2012 with my husband (we got married in 2011 with a very handmade wedding!)

The idea of setting up a business around my day job as Accidental Vix came about when I broke my hip and shattered my femur in my mid-twenties (one of several broken bones) and had plenty of time to fill many a sketchbook with ideas, doodles and moments of insanity! I love my job but it’s not always as creative as it sounds, and involves much more project management than most realise so I decided to keep up my creative levels by filling my evenings and weekends with sketches and getting my thoughts onto paper without a budget or client being involved to start with.

In Nov 2011 I had yet more major surgery to remove the existing metal and replace it with some more, which has only spurred me on to do more creative challenges to fill my long days at home in the time off work and to distract from the pain. Variety is the spice of life, so as well as continuing with my illustration, art and general creativity I am branched out into creating children and baby gifts including clothes, accessories and booties. Please see my other Etsy shop Accidental Vix for my sewn items.

My motivation and inspiration comes from anywhere and everywhere from a walk in the park to a story that friends relay or a fabric that I just have to have in my collection. Most of my inspiration comes from everyday life and observing the world around me.

So, enjoy browsing through my shop and hopefully we can bring smiles to lots of faces :)
