I had my eye on this beautiful print for a while and it was even nicer when it arrived than I had expected. It's a fabulous print, can't wait to frame and display it.

Smooth, pleasant transaction. Many thanks
Hello and welcome.
I'm Rachel, designer and creator at Hobbz Designs.
I've been based in Birmingham for a while now but I grew up on the edge of a small town in Norfolk. As a result I'm continually inspired by nature, fauna and flora and the changing of the seasons whether in my garden, the local area or on rambles across the countryside or coastline of Britain.
A lot of my work involves textiles and the creation of textures while using a dreamy, soft pastel palette. However I also enjoy creating lines through pen and print with my current work focusing on sunflowers and other garden plants.
I also create wildlife collage greeting cards to bring smiles to faces often far away and it was the cute Highland Coo card that started this adventure off in the first place.
