Where Shall We Go? Personalised Print

Dog Bundle Greeting Cards


My vision is to create a personalised product with a visual connection for the customer. This could be in the form of seeing your own pet, relative or friend within one of my designs, by the action or expression they are portraying. It’s fantastic to see customers purchasing products where they have a particular recipient in mind because of the association they can instantly visualise. I also enjoy working on custom designs, whether this is by personalisation of a current design or a completely new design, such as a newborn nursery print. I love to create a product that can feel like a creative alternative to a memorable photograph that the recipient can treasure. The environment also plays a large part in the development of my products, therefore everything is printed onto recycled and sustainable materials and uses plastic free/ reused packaging.


I take inspiration primarily from children’s books and thoroughly enjoy creating characters, in particular animals with relatable personalities and expressions, whether it’s an amusing cat doing Pilates or a dog owner going on adventures with their furry friend. I enjoy how whimsical, exaggerated and innocent illustrations can be within children’s literature and love to explore how I can develop these characteristics into my own prints. I am inspired to create products that are both cute and contemporary, but also portray a little humour, sentiment or nostalgia for the recipient. I also like to take inspiration from current trends, such as Pantone colours of the year, as well as throwing in a mix of adorable puns, particularly into my greeting card designs.


I create products digitally using Adobe Photoshop and Procreate. This allows me to create many unique and personalised commissions, developed from original designs. When studying Illustration at University several years ago, I used traditional methods such as watercolour and gouache and try to recreate a hint of this within my work. This may involve using many traditional style brushes within the digital media.
