A Wanderlust Backbird mini card.

We have just released our new collection and this blackbird is one of my favourites. I have so many little drawings on bits of paper that I love, and introducing our mini cards was a way for me to incorporate them into our collection.

I handprint all of our cards individually on this foil printing press. It is a laborious process but I like the time and care that hand printing gives to paper goods, and the touch of golden foil really helps to make the designs sing.

My studio is my happy place! It is the larger bedroom in my flat and has packing tables, my desk where I do creative work, a table for foil printing and stores some of our stock.

An image from before Wanderlust was started- here I am at my Fine Art degree show in 2016. I knew I wanted to start a stationery company in my final year at university but starting out felt like a very daunting task.

I like to go to galleries regularly to inform my design work but also to get some time away from the studio so that I’m more refreshed when I return. This is my favourite room at Tate Britain and one of my favourite Rossetti paintings.

I’m at my happiest when I’m drawing and painting- Wanderlust has been a way to make that love for creating part of my daily life. Admittedly all the other aspects of running a business often get in the way!

The first time I was able to get my products professionally photographed was so exciting and really elevated my website and business. We have our images taken by product photographer Laura Hutchinson- she has such an eye and I love her minimal styling.

A snapshot of the studio walls where I like to pin up drawings as I make them. My workspace is never without plants- I use them as drawing inspiration and like the moments of calm that tending to them brings.

Before starting my business wrapping presents was something I loved doing and now I get the same enjoyment on a daily basis from packing wholesale orders! This is one of the first orders we sent out to The Hambledon.
