Harriet Watson

Altrincham, Greater Manchester

I’m Harriet, an illustrator with a love of the great outdoors. I was fortunate enough to have grown up in the beautiful Norfolk countryside and think this shines throughout my work. I take a lot of inspiration from rural living and have a great love for flowers. My joyful designs take shape in the form of greeting cards mainly, but also wrapping paper, prints and stationary. Everything is painted in rich gouache then printed on beautiful, eco-friendly materials making each one special.

The story behind the business
Meet Harriet Watson

I have a great love of the outdoors and I’m heavily inspired by wild gardens and cut arrangements. Giving me endless inspiration for my products, I could sit for hours painting them.

Since launching my brand at the very start of 2021, fresh out of university, my joyful little designs are now proudly stocked in over 60 independent shops, florists, cafes, and galleries up and down the country. With a handful of international stockists too and always taking on new ones. Now, working from my little studio in Altrincham on the Cheshire/Manchester boarder, every aspect of this little business I do myself.

Commissions are also something I occasionally work on, ranging from moving house cards, personalised prints, collaborative greetings cards, menus too and just last year, I created a full collection of stationary for a beautiful summer wedding.

I look to celebrate everyday activities and objects, finding appreciation in simplicity and hope to encourage more people to bring the creativity and joy of the hand-painted into their homes.
