The members directory front cover has been lovingly illustrated by one of our members Emma Lawrence, and features our members products and gift ranges.

Emma Lawrence is an award-winning freelance illustrator with a range of greetings cards and children’s books.  Her unique and recognisable style using pen and mixed media is fresh, fun and appealing.   Customers love the clean lines, humour and popular themes from animals wearing wellies to jugs and cups full of wild flowers.  The beautiful Shropshire countryside, where her studio is based, provides plenty of inspiration for her drawings.   She has been a runner up in the Gift of the Year competition twice and the exposure has helped her secure several licensing partnerships, with products being launched this year.
