Meet the Maker

Meet the Maker: 06, Katie Housley

Im thrilled to introduce Katie Housley to our meet the maker series.

I am lucky to house Katie's work in our store and I love it! With effortless style, and hand finished details the stationery that she designs down in Hove are simply beautiful.

With a touch of humour Katie's work is a breath of fresh air and her story and her brand are just as refreshing.

A little bit about her brand:

Katie housley is a luxury stationery company based by the sea in Hove,  England. 

I started designing paper goods after having my children and rethinking my career - it gave me the push to be brave and start my own company. 

My stationery is inspired by nature, plants, texture and colour. Many of my cards are hand finished combining original illustrations with added textures applied by hand for a luxurious finish. 

Five facts:

 

1-

My son often joins me when I'm painting - children paint without hesitation, it's a good reminder not to overthink design.

 

2-

I love doing the monotonous tasks of my job - envelope stuffing is wonderfully therapeutic! 

 

3-

I'm a total food snob - I love nothing more than cooking (and eating) all day long. 

 

4-

My guilty pleasure is leopard print, i can't resist it! 

 

5-

I'm exhibiting at my first trade show (Top Drawer) in Jan - excited at scared all at the same time!

Thank you so much Katie for taking part!  Such an inspirational lady!
