Oh HALLO. I'm Victoria and this is Happy Stuff Studio, my little biz that exists to let me scatter all the colourful, creative nonsense in my head out into the world, hopefully spreading some smiles along the way. I design prints, wrapping paper, surface patterns for textiles, greeting cards and tea towels that will help you fulfil your wildest Geoffrey-the-butler-from-Fresh-Prince-of-Bel-Air-does-the-washing-up fantasies. Hey, I don't know, you might have those fantasies. Someone's bound to.
I tried being a serious artist for a while, but it wasn't for me, and the imposter syndrome was real. I'm a self taught illustrator, and before the dreaded virus came along I was easing myself out of an extended maternity leave and back into a half hearted career in primary school teaching. Loved the kids, loved the prat-falling, story telling and playing the ukulele; less so the admin and pressure. So I don't really do serious, at least I don't do it very well. I scrapped the serious and traded it for silly. I totally embraced my inner goofball, as well as digital illustration, and started creating illustrations and patterns that made my eyes, heart and soul happy.
Where possible I use UK based manufacturers and try to keep packaging as eco, but as colourful, as possible.
