Greeting cards

I've started making small print runs of greeting cards featuring my illustrations. I'll gradually be adding to the range but I would also love suggestions - if you think any of my previous illustrations would make a good card, let me know!

1920s Portrait greeting card £2.50, available here

I really enjoyed illustrating a 1920s girl, so I've made her a friend! This illustration is also drawn by hand and coloured digitally, like the previous portrait. Until about a year ago I had never made any art using digital media! I still feel like I have plenty to learn (especially about taking screen breaks - the eye strain..!) but I'm enjoying it. I will be adding this one to the greeting card range soon.

Giclée Prints


From left to right: A4 Print, A5 Print, greeting card (with green backs!)

I've started producing giclée prints! These will replace the inkjet prints that were previously available in my shop. They are printed with UltraChrome HD pigment inks on 325gsm archival paper. The ink and paper produce a beautiful reproduction of the colours. They are also available in two sizes now! There is the standard A4 and a new A5 size, which is very cute. I have also had some greetings cards printed. Please do take a look at them in my Etsy.
