May Summers-Perkins Illustration
Hi, I’m May from May Summers-Perkins illustration. I have just graduated from University and I am at the Handmade fair to showcase my products which include greetings cards, framed prints and illustrated gifts. I am an avid pattern designer and typography lover. I enjoy taking inspiration from nature and the surrounding area where I live in the New Forest and South Coast of England. My range is inspired by all things floral and colourful, I use vibrant colours to boost emotions while at the same time sending someone a unique and memorable gift. I have developed a range of ‘number’ cards for different ages which are non-gender specific and universal. I want my work to be all inclusive. My prints are created and printed within the UK. At the same time I am making a conscious effort to reduce the use of packaging within my products and I offer customers the option to take their cards “naked” if they wish. This is just the first step I am taking to make my business eco-friendly. As it is close to my heart I have created a “Go Green” Tea-Towel to illustrate the fact that we all need to do our bit!
