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 cards have been a constant in my range and in 2018 my designs started to get noticed by local shops which have started stocking them.

This year I started to expand my trade sales and created my first official Christmas card range for which I proposed twelve different designs. Six were selected, all the festive animals wearing the same red Santa hat badge. While the badge fronts and pins are imported, the assembling and card printing is all done in the UK with a lot of help around innumerable kitchen tables – all of which I am most grateful for.
