Hello! I’m Alexandra Snowdon and I love words. I love drawing them, reading them and writing them. Ever since I can remember I’ve doodled letters and made them look fancy while on the phone, on trains and in planes. I'm happy to say I now make my living designing hand drawn greeting cards and prints which feature my 'fancy' hand lettering. I aim to make cards that people will want to keep forever and prints that will bring fun and inspiration to your walls and shelves.
I started my business in 2012 after spending many years working as an in-house graphic designer. The corporate life wasn't for me but I persevered because I was saving up to go traveling. I finally headed off round the world when I was 36 and came back a year later determined to make a new life for myself, one that would allow me to make my own art and travel more. I went back to Uni part time to polish up my art skills. It was hard fitting my studies in around my job but eventually I graduated with a first class degree and didn't stop smiling for days. I spent the next 2 years building up my business on the side before I was finally in a position to become self employed. I'm now grateful every day that all the hard work paid off. I love making my art into thoughtful, high quality paper products and traveling with my sketchbook to find inspiration.
