Hi, I'm Pixie artist an illustrator and creator of fun themed greetings cards, wrapping paper, postcards, coffee mugs, clothing and lots of colourful goody stuff.
I live in Sheffield in the UK and have four boys and two doggies and I love to draw. I love things that stand out, which is why my designs are always bright just like my hair which is usually different colours 😀
Pixie is my nickname and my husband gave it to me 30 years ago. He is good at creating nicknames, he has a knack for it and they usually suit peoples persona which is why they generally stick.
I started Pixie Drew several years ago, just by placing my art on POD sites to see if it would sell. It really all started because my husband encouraged me to take the plunge. When the boys were young, I attended pre School playgroup with my youngest. My Hubbie was always amazed how I would get the boys ready for School and in the space of 10mins come up with a craft idea to entertain the little ones at playgroup. Straight out of my head. He would always say,
"you should do that as a job"
12 years later, here I am.
I have put my designs on t shirts, sneakers, mobile phone cases and even skateboards and have sold them all over the world. When my boys started leaving for University it was time to take my art to another level and I created Pixie Drew.
I always have ideas buzzing in my head and I just have to get them down on paper. While I still draw with a pencil and colour with prisma crayons, moreover now, I use my iPad and Ipen
The buzz for me is having an idea and bringing it to fruition on a finished product. It really makes me smile and particularly when someone leaves a nice review about a product and how happy it has made them.
I make all my products in my studio and can foward them direct to someone special if you need that service.
I also provide a private commission service for portraits of people and pets and my repertoire also extends to designing book covers and characters for children's books. In 2020, I aim to write and illustrate my first children's book.
I also have an extensive range of gifts for sale online @pixiedrew.com
