About GiraffesandUnicorns

Sales 450
On Etsy since 2016

Hello, I'm Ellie, the artist and animal lover behind Giraffes and Unicorns.

I've always been creative, I grew up loving art and making things but somehow after studying Art and Photography at college I found myself working behind a desk occasionally doodling on my notepad. I needed a creative outlet and after joining an art group in 2015 and playing around with watercolour for the first time I decided to start Giraffes and Unicorns. Since starting the business I have developed my own style of illustrative drawing and I try to capture some personality in each painting.
All my designs start out as pencil drawings which I then paint with watercolour and mostly outline with a fine liner. Paintings are then scanned onto the computer and either printed on high quality textured cardstock or sent to suppliers to print on ceramics or fabric. All lampshades and other fabric products are made by myself at home.
I aim to post all orders within 2 days (unless otherwise stated in the listing) and all products are packaged up carefully and sent to you via royal mail.
Supporting small businesses like mine makes a huge difference and means one day I may be able to make this my full time job. Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you find something that makes you smile.
