Hello, I'm Laura
Based in Wiltshire I started a Design Business in 2018. It happened when I became ill and could no longer work. I found my passion again for all things creative and started making birthday cards for friends when I felt well enough.
The idea then came about to make greeting cards for people with invisible illnesses to send to friends and family to help people have conversations about their condition and asking for help if needed. When ever someone buys one of ours cards a percentage goes towards the charity Action for ME. Take a look at their website below:
I have always loved being creative and thrived in art at school. After years working in the Retail Industry I lost time to be creative. Having the illness was life changing but it gave me the chance to be creative again. I have taught myself how to design digitally and did a few evening lesson in screen printing which i loved but was unable to keep up. I started digitally designing my ideas and turned them into fabric. With help, I make them into cushions, wash bags and hopefully more products soon at home in Wiltshire.
Life with ME make everything slower and when you want to creative and have new ideas and get going your body doesn't always play along so I am learning a-lot about patience. I would like to say that I have mild to moderate ME.
