I create hand made artists books, art prints and greetings cards reflecting nature, illustration, poetry and literary quotation. All prints, individual cards and hand crafted books are handmade by me and make special unique gift items. I happily customise cards and books so that you can send your own greeting within them.

I design and make Birthday cards, Custom made cards, Artist cards, Wedding gifts, Christening gifts, engagement gifts, birthday gifts and anniversary gifts, and I personalise them to make them extra special Gift giving is all about connection, and I love the opportunity creating handmade goods allowing for that.
My illustration work is now available as personalised greeting cards or as art prints. I love to make my cards special to the recipient and can include a greeting or poem on the inside, and often incorporate a greeting on the design of the card too. It is always special to receive a card, and how much more when it is an artist illustration tailored to your requirements!

Every handmade book I make is unique, designed often with my own illustrations, and hand bound.
I love to create items that will not be replicated anywhere, reflecting as they do my personal interests in history, philosophy, art, literature, nature and photography. A handmade book is a keepsake that creates a connection between the commissioner, the maker and the recipient. It is imbibed with the care and thought that has gone into it's creation and it's purchase.

I have recently included in the product range notebooks and mugs which are produced by third party manufacturers.

Review from Commission :

"I approached Anne with a strong concept, vague description and tight timescale for creating a poem book with which to propose to my girlfriend. I had written a poem linked to her engagement ring and our relationship but wanted images to correspond to each verse and a stylised finish to bring it all together. I had seen examples of her work online and asked her to draw together the different aspects that appealed to me.
Anne worked collaboratively with me to create and refine a number of drafts before we went to print, ensuring that I was 100% happy with the final product. Her responsiveness, professionalism and personal touch made all the difference in creating a keepsake that my fiancée is thrilled with.
On top of all that, I found her prices to be very reasonable for the level of effort involved.
Thank you Anne, it was a pleasure to work with you. " Simon Scannell

About

Crafting a creative life with illustration

My favourite pursuit is making hand made books, but these are time consuming and dependant on what inspiration I am finding. So to get the creative juices flowing I also make and design unique cards.
Handling my handmade books will connect you to the universe - they are all made with a deep curiosity and respect for the world we inhabit. Each book is unique, designed often with my own illustrations, and hand made. And giving handmade is always special - both for the giver and the recipient. What could be nicer than a handmade book tailored to someone's particular interests?

I love to create items that will not be replicated anywhere, reflecting as they do my personal interests in history, philosophy, art, literature, nature and photography.

I am happy to produce commissioned books working with you to produce a completely unique and personalised item. If you tell me who it is for, and a theme that you would like I will show you my ideas and if you want to commission a book I will go ahead!!

An addition to the product range has arrived! - self published notebooks of my illustration complemented with uplifting quotation.
There is also a book which showcases a variety of my card design.
