Shropshire-based illustrator and designer, Emma Lawrence, is looking to develop the range of products she currently offers and make an even bigger hit over the coming years as her iconic yet contemporary designs continue to attract all the right attention.

Emma Lawrence Designs already produces a range of stunning products, including greeting cards with a unique, fresh and charming style.  Being from such a beautiful part of the country Emma takes inspiration from the natural world around her and has developed a personality and style that is almost impossible to mistake or not to love.  After leaving a 20-year career as a Clinical Psychologist in the NHS, she has finally been able to fulfil her dream of illustrating, designing and writing.

Emma has also developed a new range of products based on the illustrations from her Little Nature Explorers® series of books.  The books were created to encourage children to get outside, explore and to develop their interest in our wonderful natural world from an early age.  They are written in engaging rhyme and take the reader on a fascinating journey.  The beautifully detailed and exquisite illustrations lend themselves to fun, appealing and fresh designs which are captivating and enchanting.  The designs such as a bug pattern have been turned into a small range of successful products and Emma is now keen to seek further licensing partnerships to develop ideas for products such as story colouring books, puzzle books, colour-in cards, enamel mugs, gift wrap and tags, jigsaws, fabric products, memory games, stationery and more!

Talking about her success so far, Emma comments: “I love developing designs and products that make people smile.  I’m so pleased that what I have produced so far has been so well received– the feedback has been great and this is reflected in the sales that I have already had.  I am keen to combine education and fun with illustrations that appeal to a wide age range.  They are also perfect at a time when the importance of nature is being highlighted everywhere”.
