Designer/maker and graphic artist in love with ink, print and books

Raw Mixture is a small indie publisher based on the north coast of Pembrokeshire - a gorgeous and inspiring landscape of headlands, beaches, wide skies and small mountains

I design and produce a diverse range of original cards, prints and quirky stationery items which make up the handmade side of the business. I print all the work myself and enjoy the add-on value of packaging it nicely! Creativity is not easy to control!

Raw Mixture Handmade runs alongside Raw Mixture Publishing. Both sides of the business are represented by our crucible logo - a little melting pot of raw ideas that are mixed and fired by love, soul and humour to produce work that people can engage with.

We publish our own books, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, meditations, illustrated kids’ books, and the online magazine Unpsychology, edited by husband Steve. The magazine accepts submissions from writers, artists, storytellers, photographers, poets and activists worldwide. Each edition has a theme and is available as a digital download.

I guess one of our messages as Raw Mixture is that this is YOUR time. Humans feel pressure from so many things in a mad world, presenting as anxiety, depression and a sense of failure. These are huge time-wasters in a precious life, often compounded by loneliness, isolation and disconnection. Helping people make connections between their daily lives, their inner worlds and what is going on in the wider social and ecological spheres of the world gives them a framework, a way to move forward. Our books and cards try to support that.

Phew!

I really do believe in the positive power of doing! I am passionate about designing, making, gardening, sewing and building. The big barn conversion project that is now our home and workspace was the happiest, most fulfilling project of my life. It is a magic place to be and I love what I do everyday.
