Hello! I'm Megan, the illustrator and designer who made all the products in this shop. I started when I first graduated from university in 2011 with a BA Hons in Illustration. Since then I have had many adventures and slowly grown my business.
As well as being an illustrator I also trained to be a teacher for English as a foreign language. This job led me to live in Italy for 7 years, so many of my  products are inspired by living there and the Italian culture.
All of my products start off with an idea in my head that I then sketch or paint on paper to try and realise the design. I then paint several mock ups and drafts of my idea before painting the final design in watercolours. 
I love to share my process on instagram and ask for ideas and opinions from my followers. My aim is to create products that bring a little joy into people's lives and make them feel inspired. 
I hope you like my shop and keep following as this little business grows.
