About

Bettyjoy's story

I grew up in a wild and beautiful village in the North Pennines called Alston where my mum ran an art and craft gallery. I used to 'help' her out from an early age and even got to sell my handmade wares in the gallery. My first sale was aged 6 when a kind old lady bought a man made from plasticine for 20p.

My heart lies in Surface Pattern, it makes my heart skip and puts a smile on my face and after the birth of my daughter, I decided to try and make my long-held dream of having a career in surface pattern and print a reality.

My love of nature inspires my designs. As a child, some nature-loving friends and I created our own nature group (creatively named TCFN aka The Club For Nature) which met in our garden shed and went off exploring the countryside looking for clues, collecting specimens and often marched round the garden with placards with 'Don't Stamp on Bees' and other catchy slogans painted on them.

My love of nature and animals has continued as a grown-up and my desire is to use the natural world's endless inspiration to create a wonderland of bright-eyed and bushy tailed design that brings more happy to your home. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I love making it.
