I recently came across printmaker Kate Heiss in a press release for Athena Art. Athena were famous in the UK in the 1980's and 90's for their contemporary prints and posters, and now back up on running online Kate Heiss's work based on the four seasons will form part of their 2017 collection. Kate studied at the Royal College of Art and graduated with an MA in Textile Design. She then worked as a Textile Designer for fashion brands such as Miss Selfridge, before opening her own printmaking studio. Kate has also produced a range of fabulous cards for publishers Art Angels showcasing her beautiful floral and bird prints. Find out lots more online here at Kate Heiss.

CARDS & PAPER - raspberry blossom

These lovely notebooks are by Raspberry Blossom, a British Stationery company founded by Rebecca Crouch and were spotted online at Not on the High Street. I then checked out their instagram page and admired their lovely painterly styles and pretty colours seen on notebooks, cards, and wrapping papers.
