Practical and Attractive. Purposeful and Beautiful. Hand Drawn Homes and Illustrated Stationery.

It started with drawing. Some drawings I liked and some I didn't, and the ones I liked I wanted to share with other people. I then realised that many people, me included, like their art to also do something useful. And so I started creating stationery and other paper goods that serve a purpose and look beautiful at the same time.

Currently, I focus on bespoke house and building portraits and illustrations, that can also be added to note cards, greetings cards and invitations.

I always start with paper and ink... everything that looks hand drawn, is. I create on paper and then scan the artwork but only edit digitally to remove smudges and prepare for printing.

During 2018 I hope to add a range of wedding stationery, more options for customisable note cards, and more art prints - including downloadable.

Returns and exchange details
If you're not happy with anything you've bought from me, please let me know and I'll do what I can to refund or replace. I'm afraid I can't cancel or refund custom orders once I've started work on your illustration, so if you have any problems please do contact me as soon as possible.
Please pay as soon as you can after making your order. If I've not heard anything within three days then I may well cancel your purchase.
I will send all non-custom orders within three business days of payment, and usually within one business day if at all possible.

Let me know if you need anything super-quickly and I'll do my best. Communication is key!

I use Royal Mail First Class as standard, and all prints and cards are sent in heavy-duty board-backed envelopes to ensure they reach you safely. Note cards and larger items are packed in thick card wraps, Amazon-style, or cardboard boxes.

Orders in excess of £20 are automatically sent by recorded mail and will require a signature on delivery.

I will send orders to the address listed on the Etsy order. If you would prefer your order sent elsewhere, please get in touch via Etsy message to confirm. I'm happy to resend orders that are returned to me due to an incorrect address, but customers will need to bear the cost if it's a result of their listing the wrong address on their Etsy account!

Standard domestic postage is free and overseas postage just requires a small surcharge as detailed on each listing.
Additional policies and FAQs
Copyrights of all illustrations (including custom orders) are non-transferable with sale. If you're interested in purchasing the copyright for your image, please contact me.

I may use any illustrations, including custom orders, for advertising and promotion including, but not limited to, my social media, website and hard copy print. All identifying features (names, addresses etc) will be removed in advance. If you would prefer me not to use your custom illustration for these purposes, please contact me to discuss.

If your custom order requires me to work closely from a photo, please ensure you have copyright (it's your photo) or have requested permission from the copyright owner (for example, your wedding photographer).

Customers are responsible for thoroughly checking their print proof (particularly address details!) and I cannot take responsibility for any errors that were signed off at proof stage. If necessary, I will happily reprint as cost-effectively as possible but customers will need to bear these costs. I take full responsibility for correcting and reprinting if any errors are identified in the final product that WERE NOT present in the proof.

All commissions and custom orders are undertaken on the basis that these conditions are accepted.
