I’ve loved to draw and create things all my life, and started my giftware shop in February 2016. I design my items in Dorset, UK – near a crumbling castle and golden beaches. In my spare time I love to play board games (especially Monopoly – though I don’t often win), read YA fantasy books, swim in the sea, or eat Mexican food (preferably with a margarita or two).
I print my illustrations onto mugs, coasters, badges, t-shirts and more. When I’m creating a new item my aim is that it will make people smile. I like things to be colourful and uplifting – these are the gifts I love to give!
I came up with the name ‘Gifting Moon’ because when I was little someone told me my birthstone was moonstone, and I grew up looking up to the moon and dreaming up magical ideas. I can often see a face on the moon and it always looks content to me, so I thought this was the perfect symbol to represent my happy gifts.
