My greetings card designs have always been inspired by those extra special cards that I remember receiving as a child that included a detachable badge—like an extra gift. Since I started illustrating, these have been a constant in my range.

In 2018, my designs started to get noticed by local shops, and several now stock my products. In addition, Caroline Bartl of Pearl and Black began distributing my cards on a larger scale.

This year sees my first official Christmas card range. For this I proposed twelve separate designs, all featuring the same red Santa hat badge; of these six have been selected for production. While the badge fronts and pins are imported, the card printing and assembling is done in the UK, with a lot of help around innumerable kitchen tables—all of which I am most grateful for.
