The day I dressed like my drawing.
Growing up beside an allotment and overlooked by woodland I have always been lucky to be surrounded by wildlife. Strong memories of building nature hideouts from overgrown grass, hand rearing newborn hedgehogs & watching fox clubs play together in the snow are just some of the happy memories that form the basis to my growing collection of designs.
My interest in all things paper began at the age of 16 when I worked in a gift shop. Surrounded by beautiful cards, gift wrap, tags & notebooks, I would often comment to other staff members that one day I would design and create my own range. I chased my dreams to art college and in 2013 graduated with a 1st class degree in Graphic Design & Illustration.
I now run The Paper Creative alongside a part time job in a Rural Gallery. I am lucky to still be surrounded with wildlife and on any days off can be spotted in the fresh air stretching my legs in the countryside, hunting for nature (and inspiration) in its natural habitat.
