Perfectly handmade homewares and accessories featuring beautiful drawings, inspired by nature.
Hello and welcome to katiebirdie, founded in 2017 after I started drawing whatever inspired me in my constantly changing natural surroundings. My artwork, homeware and accessories all echo the layers of pattern, colour and tiny details I like to get lost in, and help to bring my natural surroundings into your home.
It all starts with a drawing – I love to capture what I’ve spotted on my daily walks with my pencils and watercolours, using various techniques to recreate the chaos of the nature I’m inspired by. The drawings work hard, becoming prints and cards, beautiful patterns on fabrics, finally being lovingly handmade by myself into cushions, bags and lampshades.
It's so special when one of my drawings or a cushion or lampshade reminds someone of their garden or a favourite walk, the smell of their favourite flowers, an insect, bird or even the orchard they keep their bees. It makes me smile and I hope my pieces spark happy memories and inspire you to explore the great outdoors.
