Hello! I’m Maria. I’m an experienced graphic designer with more years under my belt than I care to admit, and a weakness for buying stationery. I started Le Cheval Fou at the beginning of 2020 while simultaneously working as a self-employed graphic designer. The purpose of starting this business was so that I could focus on my personal and business values of FAMILY, CREATIVITY, and HAPPINESS.
Let me explain...
FAMILY – The ability to be flexible and enjoy quality time with my sons while making a living doing what I love. In particular, creating designs that are suitable for the whole family, including my own.
CREATIVITY – Being able to be creative without any external pressures (such as clients) is a liberating experience and so much fun! Everything I sell is created by me, for you.
HAPPINESS – I believe art, and design in general, should make the viewer light up. It makes me incredibly happy to know that my creations are brightening someone else's home. The 'I've just made a sale' happy dance is real!
So what is it that I do?
I create original art, wall art prints, greetings cards and notecards, and one-off handmade bookmarks suitable for the whole family. All my creations are unique, fun, and affordable, designed to raise a smile and decorate your home without breaking the bank. Everything I sell is handmade with love (by moi!) and intended to brighten and add colour to your home and life.
The perfect treat for yourself, your children, family, and friends.
