It has been a little while since we did a meet the maker, but have no fear we are back in business and to kick things off we have the wonderful Fiona Fawcett from the stunning Yorkshire brand Plewsy. With her charming illustrations, lovely use of colour and not to mention her adorable pup! She is most definitely a lady to go and check out and to support!
Here is a little bit about Fiona and how she runs her beautiful independent business!
'Plewsy is a fun illustrated stationery and homewares brand. We are passionate about all of our ideas being illustrated in Yorkshire and made in Britain. We are also very proud to be a Princes Trust supported business.
Plewsy is an outlet for me to develop my love for illustration and design. After graduation and a stint in the design industry, Plewsy was born. I take inspiration from my Yorkshire roots and absorb snippets of daily conversation to create new light hearted ideas!'
Fiona's Five Facts:
1. I love painting with bright watercolour and inks, creating lots of patterns
2. I have a curly cockapoo puppy called Noddy
3. I am very scared of pigeons but I love donkeys
4. I lost my first designer job after uni which gave me the push I needed to start up my own little business
5. I'm a chain tea drinker
Thank you so much Fiona for getting involved with the Meet the Maker and allowing us to know a little bit behind the scenes of your brand!
