I’m an artist and all round creative. I sell colourful greeting cards, motivational prints, and cute enamel pins & patches and always dreaming up new ideas.
I get inspiration from pattern, flowers, space, typography, books and social media (there are SO many creative people out there)
When I am not being creative, I am finding the perfect brownie, watching F1 and obsessing over everything NASA does.
I like to travel (but I HATE flying), New York City being my very favourite!
I also have a BSc in Design from Duncan of Jordanstone which I am actually pretty proud of.
I started Xoxo Designs after my Mum got diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in 2013 and Maggie's Centre's supported my family out massively. I wanted to thank them by donating money from my Christmas Cards, and thats how it really started. My Mum is all clear now and is the unofficial second employee of Xoxo Designs! I don't know what I would do without my Mum and Dad.
I started by hand painting every card, which was very time consuming! Nowadays I draw an idea on my iPad or in my sketchbook and then finish the design off on my computer.
Being creative is my passion. I want to create fun colourful gifts to brighten up everyone's day. Life is hard and I want my products to bring a little bit of confidence and happiness into our lives.
