I'm Emma an established designer of bespoke wedding stationery, creating personal and handmade wedding stationery alongside a variety of other design services.
I create hand painted stationery tailored to each individual client, providing a unique customer lead service. My favourite mediums to work in are watercolour and ink, I love the way the colours mix and interact with the water, paper and brush. I love to use traditional methods in a modern way. My Grandfather is a beautiful watercolour painter and I've grown up surrounded by his lovely landscapes which continues to inspire me today.
Along side wedding stationary I offer a range of design services including commissioned artwork, small business branding, illustration and surface pattern design. After graduating from University College Falmouth with a BA (Hons) in Textile Design I have spent 8 years working in print and embroidery for the fashion industry where I continued to develop my passion for colour, texture and styling.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME.
My work is often inspired by the English coast and countryside. I am lucky to live in North Devon where we have gorgeous coastline, an abundance of beautiful beaches as well as the rugged moorland and woodland of Exmoor right on the doorstep. Oh and there are some really great coffee shops around too!
If you peeked through the door of my studio on a weekday you would most likely find me painting, with a coffee somewhere nearby, a podcast filling the studio and fresh flowers on the table.
When I am not creating beautiful paper goods for my customers, you are likely to find me out on a good long walk, taking a dip in the sea or tending to my garden trying desperately to grow enough flowers to pick some for the studio...flowers falling second in line to my love of painting (you may notice I combine the two at any opportunity!)
My mission is to provide a high quality and personal design service while always making conscious environmental business decisions.
All cards, art prints and commissions available in my shop are supplied in a compostable corn starch sleeve, posted in recycled and recyclable envelopes / boxes. All printing is based in England and where possible using recycled paper. For beautiful hand finishing of invitation packing I source naturally dyed recycled silk ribbon from a small business based in North Devon. You won't find an inch of watercolour paper I haven't made use of in the studio and I am always looking into new ways of keeping my footprint small and making a difference.
