From drawing dinosaurs every day as a child, to deciding to make a go at chasing my dream from my mum's dining room table in my mid twenties, I am now lucky enough to call this my job.

All my products start off as a lovingly created original watercolour illustration and my first big breakthrough came with the addition of a pompom adorned party hat on to one of my cards. This idea went on to form the birthday card ranges for which I am most known. I hope you like them!

The story behind the business
Meet Robert James Hull

"The key to a good painting is in the eyes", that's something my art tutor told me when I was younger and something that has always stuck with me. They're usually the final bit I add when painting new designs for my cards, and when everything really comes together.

I paint in watercolour, something I started purely because it was the only painting medium I had in my house when I wanted to paint a picture for my mum for Mother's Day about ten years ago. Following a tough learning curve, I quickly fell in love with it.

After spending several years painting private commissions, I decided to create a range of products to reach more people with my artwork. Each product is deeply personal, featuring a design that took many hours (and often multiple attempts to get just right!). It delights to me see them bringing joy to people all over the world.
