"I have to create; I don’t feel whole
without design in my life."
After a long and rewarding career as a
commercial textile designer, and the rewarding time bringing up my two gorgeous
children who inspire me in so many ways, my love of design, texture and the
beauty of colour in its myriad of combinations has finally led me back into the
Having a small manageable design business which
I can control from whoa to go while raising my children has been a long held
dream. I have finally taken the plunge and created Ozscape Designs' stationery,
a completely handmade range of cards and journals of a very high quality and
with a very affordable price.
For me there was always something lacking in the
stationery market. It was "too stylized", or "too simple, I could do that" or
"seen it before, boring" or "cheap and nasty and just plain ugly". I have tried
to create the Wow factor. I want a "Wow, love the colours!", or "Oh, that's
gorgeous! or "Gee ,it's so different!", response.
Ozscape it! is my motto.
Try something new and different.
And take a peek at the other things I like to create too.
