After studying Fine Art at university, I moved to London and have been part of a wonderful friendship group that have shared a variety of life experiences & adventures together and each time, I've used my creative streak to make personalised gifts to mark these milestones.
Using my experience in the film industry art department drawing film sets, I started making greetings cards and wall art for my friends to celebrate big birthdays, new flats, engagements, hen dos and weddings. It has been in the last year that I rented a studio in South East London and have decided to turn my passion into a business.
My love of line drawing and skills as a draughtsman allow me to really explore the intricate process of laser cutting & etching and I become more enthralled every time I turn a precious place or moment into a personalised keepsake. I begin each piece as a line drawing, either in pencil or on my computer. I then use the lines to map out a path for the laser to cut or etch the wood. I love to use wood as it is such a warm yet strong material. The surface pattern changes every time time I get a new batch, therefore the product feels like it is evolving and means each piece is a complete one off. I love the smell of it too, especially after the laser has cut or etched it!
Using quality materials in my work also means that my pieces are long lasting and durable yet where possible I use recyclable, natural materials.
My personalised products make wonderful, thoughtful gifts and hopefully will make a very happy loved one. Please do come and say hello, and we can talk about your special idea or place, or have a little nosey around our online shop here. Thank you for stopping by!
