Then, being able to top up my income with a part-time job in
my local primary school, I found that the children loved my sketches. l decided to switch greetings cards for badge and keyring creation, displaying my cartoon designs. My
'Badge-ewelled' products are still selling very successfully.
Having been asked to paint a library wall mural at the school that I work in (a first for me!), this led to the idea of a family tree … and so The You Tree was born (or 'sown'?!), with my then 12-year-old daughter thinking up the clever name!
Here, at my little haven I call 'The You Tree HQ', The You Tree now creates unique and endearing prints, on top quality paper and using professional quality printing.
All original images have been hand-drawn by myself (hence
the consistent style), then scanned onto a computer, and
digitally-coloured, using a graphics package.
The attention to detail is what I love about this artwork, which is why I decided to make it personalisable. Not only can I add
your family name, but also characters to symbolise each family member, in hair-style & fashion- including facial hair & glasses!
