Creativity and community!

Well, it has been a wonderful end to the week here in my studio... I have been working towards completing some of my #TinyTasks (a little initiative set up by some of the lovely people who are a part of the inspirational creative meetups at epanoui, it helps to keep us all accountable). 

One of the things that I wanted to achieve by the second week of August was to have a new print run of my cards completed (yes I am putting that in writing for all to see... no getting away from it now). This includes using a new local printer (gotta support local independents) and finishing up some new embroidered artwork (see below).

A tough task along with exhibition pieces, gallery applications and some freelance marketing work I have scheduled in at the moment, but I was up for the challenge...

Well in true Hannah style, the deadline sparked off some more ideas... some new pieces of Illustration art that I just HAD to include...

as well as a two brand new pieces of embroidery art and some tweaked pieces from my collection that I just couldn't leave out...

and some pieces from my initial positively pretty embroidery collection that jumped out at me and screamed to be included.

If that wasn't enough, I was inspired to try add a couple of new items to my popular cut paper collection... which then rolled over to cut paper cards for kids.  

So in short... my #TinyTask has lead to 38 greetings cards off for proof printing (12 of which are re-prints from my original print run or slightly tweaked)! So now, I need you, tell me all about your favourite independent gift and lifestyle shops as I want to get all of these new designs out there in to peoples hands, helping to spread positivity one piece of affordable art at a time!  Email me studio@hannahheys.com, DM or comment on social media to let me know where you would like to see my work! 

Keep your eyes peeled for more!

Well it has been a little while... but this exciting news just can't wait! After my new card collections had a little soft launch on Saturday, the first new stockist of this range of greetings cards is up and running with a range now available in their shop. This range includes designs from my cut paper, digital detail and embroidered 'pretty pieces of positivity' collections, all printed on FSC board in England. 


I am so pleased to be stocked in the beautiful épanoui in Bedford, a gorgeous shop full of wonderful gift items, homeware and beautiful jewellery, handmade by the very talented owner herself (another Hannah). If that wasn't enough, they also run a fab range of workshops which you can check out here (if you needed any more of a reason to make your way to delightful den of design). Here is a little look at the inside of épanoui... featuring my cards right in the middle hurray!

This new range of greetings cards are proving rather popular (what a lovely problem to have), so there will need to be a little bit of a re-stock before I can start selling them from the website if you can't make your way to épanoui, but they will be on the way soon so watch this space.
