About Me

Handmade cards for all.  Beautiful, artistic and perfect for framing  or as gift. The unique character designs and repurposed materials make them a one-of-a-kind gift to send receive and cherish.

 

Where Paper Meets Fashion.

DIVERSITY IN COLOURS 

My handmade and hand-finished cards may vary to reflect individuality and to allow you to embrace your changes.  All cards are blank inside, for you to write your own special message. My cards are renowned as beautiful ethnic cards with a mixed media approach.  I am inspired by a knowledge of inclusion and beauty. I create unique cards, and I know you are the best, without a doubt. The cards are woven with love and attention for an inclusive and exclusive approach to send or keep simply as Art.

Upon recognising a need for greeting cards that celebrate women and girls in all their glory and diverse range of colors, I decided to create my own range of  hand finished cards. The options and styles offered by mainstream producers were far too limited. I take pride in designing each card an artistic, one-of-a-kind creation. These cards can be used traditionally as a greeting card or framed as a gift.

 

One of my bespoke designs was chosen to go in the British Archives for greeting cards (2019).

Donating to Charity 

Giving something back to my community is also very important to me. I donate 30p from each beautiful card sold to a UK based women's charity (Solace). I am passionate about domestic violence being everyone's business. I also believe that every woman is unique, just as my cards are also unique. Moreover, women and girls should not have to live in fear for the rest of their lives because of domestic violence, abuse and attack.

 

My contribution will support towards counselling, mentoring, supporting victims and much more. I feel this is a wonderful partnership although the majority of my cards depict women, they are bought by anyone. As nobody should suffer from domestic abuse, but unfortunately no one is immune to it.

¬†As Maya Angelou said, ¬†‚ÄúEach time a woman stands up for herself without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.‚ÄĚWe¬†feel this is a wonderful partnership¬†to help put an end to domestic abuse through the use of¬†my bespoke cards.¬†

My cards double up as a gift  and this is good for ones emotional well being. 

My bespoke cards are beautifully hand crafted using a mixed media approach , including some fabrics and are decorated  with gems, organza and other fine embellishments. Each card is different, giving people an informed choice in terms of skin tone, beauty, fashion, love style and happiness.

My cards showcase women at the pinnacle of their power and glory.

From the many titles that women hold, my cards depict women as they are, in all their diverse and magnificent forms.
