Tell us a little about you
Hi My name is julie aka little button nose. When choosing my website name, my nickname from school came to mind as I wanted something that was quirky, a name people would remember and smile at...and yes I do have a very small nose!
Have you always been crafty, or is it something that you've picked up more recently?
I have been making things for many many years as I am at my happiest creating new and exciting things, it started with making presents for friends and then I decided to sell my products at craft fairs and recently I have started exhibiting at wedding fairs.
Have you been particularly influenced by any other artists or events?
I love Carolyn Gavin designs, her quirky illustrations and colour combinations are lovely and also I love Caroline Gardners greeting cards and associated products, I better not get started about how excited I get when I go to Paperchase in London!! A kid in a sweetie shop comes to mind!
What is your favourite piece?
ooooh thats a tough one. I had so much fun designing my notecards sets, using patterns and textures and experimenting with different colour combinations and I am very pleased with the simple yet effective way of packaging the cards, but I am very excited to launch my new range of canvas designs at Handm@de Oxford.
What other artists are you excited about seeing at Handm@de Oxford?
I am very excited to see EVERYONE at Handm@de Oxford, from looking at the blog and seeing everyones lovely products I think it may be best if I leave my wallet at home!
