Ellie uses her colourful, hand-drawn, painted and geometric illustrations to make cards, prints and notebooks, with the aim of bringing smiles to people's faces. She takes commissions, sells her work online and through a growing list of stockists around the UK. Ellie's creations are always printed on recycled or FSC (sustainable) paper stock, by environmentally conscious printing companies. All the packaging used is recycled, recyclable or biodegradable; right down to the corn-starch greetings card pockets and cotton or wool twine used for grouping packs of cards. Sometimes, she even sells her cards naked! oooOOOOooooh. (See below).
Ellie's work is inspired by nature, colour and memories. More often than not, although her subjects are based on reality there's something a little retro or fantastical about them, giving them a heightened sense of playfulness.

JUST A CARD
The JUST A CARD campaign encourages
people to buy from designer/makers and independent shops by reinforcing the message that all purchases, however small, even 'just a card' are vital to the prosperity and survival of small businesses.
The brilliant Naked Cards campaign to encourage online card sellers to ditch the plastic cellos in favour of either 'naked' cards or paper packaging. I have taken the pledge, which means that if you order my cards online you will receive them with minimal packaging - and never any plastic!
