Liverpool is an amazing city and it’s a huge part of who I am as an artist. My connection to the region led me to create a special series of gifts, prints and cards that reflect everything I love about the city.
From ferry rides on the Mersey and the iconic Cavern Club that saw the birth of the Beatles to the local football club and Albert Docks, Liverpool a brilliant city to visit. The people are known for their sense of humour and a warm welcome, wherever you come from.
Liverpool Gifts: What Are They?
My Liverpool gifts are built on the distinctive design of the local landmark, the Liver Buildings. On top of this listed building on the edge of the River Mersey are two amazing Liver Birds. They are synonymous with the city and its people which is why I’ve used them to create a range of jewellery for pins and badges, earrings and necklaces.
I’ve also used the same iconography on cards for occasions such as weddings, birthdays, Valentine’s Day and I’ve created some prints that would look great on any wall. If you are searching for something to remind you of the city, take a look at my Liverpool gifts today.
Who Are They For?
Anyone. Perhaps you lived in Liverpool and have moved away but want a piece of the city to carry with you. Maybe you have a friend or loved one who is mad about the city and you want to buy them a gift that is fun and meaningful. Or perhaps you’re just a big fan of the city.
Whatever the reason, my high quality, handmade pins, necklaces, badges and brooches make the perfect small gift at an affordable price.
Why Handmade is Best
We live in a world where mass production is everywhere. Fortunately, the Internet has opened up the world for thousands crafters and artists to share their works.
Handmade means you are getting a unique and individual item, unlike anything else in the world. You’re also supporting independent businesses who often support the local community themselves.
A Little About Me
I was brought up and have spent most of my life in the Liverpool area. I studied scientific illustration at university and worked for many years in the graphic design industry. My first love, however, has always been art and crafts and nearly five years ago I made the move to start my own business.
Much of my artwork is influenced by the natural world and my grounding in illustration helped hone my skills over the years. In recent years, I’ve translated many of my images into products such as greeting cards and further expanded into making handmade gifts such as necklaces, pins, brooches and earrings.
Like many cottage industries, I’ve benefited hugely from being able to sell my handmade products online and reach a worldwide audience.
