Hand drawn treasures

Western Sketch is a small luxury greeting card publisher created by Melissa Western.

After graduating in illustration in my early twenties I found myself working and living in London as a childrenswear buyer

Shortly after my 2nd daughter was born I rediscovered my passion for illustration and slowly built up an initial collection of luxury cards printed in small runs in the UK. My cards often feature my love of animals or food and many incorporate playful sayings or puns. I have a unique range of personalised cards available which make wonderful inexpensive gifts.

​My business and family have grown since I launched in 2018 and it has been a busy couple of years for me as we welcomed a third child and relocated to Nottingham.

You can follow my latest work and news on my instagram feed @westernsketch or sign up to my newsletter over on my website www.westernsketch.co.uk and be entered into my monthly giveaway.
