Illustrated Home and Paper Goods

My mission is to add a little Everyday Magic to your life, and to every one of my prints, cards and other home decor goods! I believe in using my designs to create unique, beautiful and timeless designs to decorate your walls, homes and lives - from the prettiest present at the party, to the perfect gallery wall.

I make designs for people like me - the instagram snappers, the shelfie stylers and the cosy corner creators. It's my goal to create products that are uniquely and indentifiably "me", whilst being most definitely a bit of "you" - I like to keep my finger on the trend pulse, but find a way to do my own thing.

Made in the uk

It's always been important to me to source my products in the UK, and my designs are always sourced from UK suppliers and manufacturers wherever possible.

I design all of my products from my studio just outside of London, and every order is packed and dispatched from there too, so you can be sure that a human (Me!) has carefully prepared and packed your order from start to finish, and that each piece is carefully designed with my original illustrations.

Sustainably Sourced Paper and Card

As an illustrated and designer of paper-based products, it's always my mission to reduce unneccessary waste, and to reduce my impact on the planet whilst I do it.

When sourcing new products, packaging and anything else paper-based, it is always my goal to find paper and cardboard products that are FSC certified, sustainably sourced, or recycled.

small business owner

I've been an avid illustrator ever since I began to specialise in illustration in my second year at Uni. I was fascinated with creating beautiful drawings and applying them to products that people could treasure in their homes, and so eventually I graduated in 2016, jumped straight into running my own business, and never looked back!

I kicked things off with the publishing my book, House Jungle, straight out of my degree, and began working on developing designs, learning everything I could about running a small business, and dispatching orders from a desk in the corner of my uni bedroom!

Over time, my business has followed me from there to my childhood bedroom, to a small flat outside of London, and finally to a cosy little studio space in our home in Hertfordshire, where in 2019, designing products and packing your orders became my full time job. Best job in the world!
