About me

About  Me

Helloooo! I’m Kirsten and I’m a graphic designer and illustrator from West Yorkshire, UK.

 

Ever since I can remember I’ve loved to draw. I’d practice and practice drawing portraits, trying to get them to look as realistic as possible and making sure to retain every little detail from the image I was working from. As well as drawing, I learned the ins and outs of Photoshop in my teens and would spend hours creating little graphics for my Myspace page (way before Facebook was a thing!)

 

With a little push from my lovely fiancé, I decided to take the plunge and open my own Etsy shop at the start of 2014 offering logos, branding packages and graphics. After 5 years, I was slowly losing interest as I was working ridiculous hours and found it incredibly difficult to say no to customers. I didn't have any time to create fresh designs and even lost out on potential sales as I was always working on another person's design. All of this really took its toll on my mental and physical health so I decided to make a big change. At the start of this year, I decided to go back to the art style that I originally loved and introduced physical products to my shop such as stickers, enamel pins and art prints and I'm loving this new venture so far! Each item is designed and packaged by myself in my home studio.
