About Us

We are a mother and daughter team based in Somerset, Julia Manning and Sarah Robson, together we create beautiful greeting cards based upon Julia's sumptuous prints. Julia is a well-known printmaker and Sarah from a fashion textile background; together we mix our creative and business knowledge to form a niche and individual card business.

The rich assortment of flora and fauna on display in the local region and wild places she visits shapes the inspiration for much of Julia's work. Often found with binoculars or telescope in hand, Julia seeks to observe scenarios and interactions between birds and animals - whether it be an exchange of glances or the movement of a bird in flight; she instinctively interprets a fleeting moment in sketch and then later re-interprets in print. Her depth of knowledge and appreciation for her subject matter is palpable and adds to the vibrancy and animation of her prints. Translated onto cards create timeless designs with characters full of humour that brightens anybody's day.

We are always updating our ever growing range with new delights. The cards are left blank for your own message and can suit every occasion. Our cards are to be shared but also kept, many of our customers like to frame them on their walls

Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you enjoy our cards.
