I’m Amy, I'm a newbie to indie biz life and I design and create fun and accessible learning resources for children.
Having stepped away from my career as a primary teacher to spend more time at home with my family, in 2020 I set up an Insta account to share the learning ideas I was doing with my daughter, Lizzie. Lizzie loves learning and I rediscovered my talent for painting during an art project of ours. I began to get really excited by the idea of bringing together my joy of art and painting with my passion of learning in a fun way. I came up with the idea of a topic-based learning magazine for primary age children packed with unusual facts, puzzles, colouring, science, stories and more. I illustrated it all myself in water colours, added text and had it printed. Within 3 weeks of launching, the magazine had sold both online and in our wonderful community shop.
I am currently working on the next few issues alongside a range of colouring books, art prints and posters, all to promote learning and all from my kitchen table in the heart of Yorkshire.
