Arthur Bear isn’t a wedding stationery designer: he’s still too young and cute even for school… but his mum, who named her business A Bear Draws after him, must be the loveliest, most talented illustrator and graphic designer to hit the UK wedding industry in years!
Zoe is the super talent behind wedding stationery shop A Bear Draws. She’s passionate about her work and uniquely skilled in creating invites which are both hand crafted and digitally designed. I love what she does: I’m so sure you will too!
Zoe has spent the past 14 years working in the design industry, honing the application of her drawing and design skills to various surfaces. “Designing patterns for fashion and interiors has helped me to develop a distinctive style and my print knowledge is such that I can offer truly original ideas for wedding stationery printed professionally on to high quality fabric or paper.”
“My designs feature hand illustrated animals and wildlife, namely stags, bunnies and birds alongside hand painted floral patterns. I have a portfolio of designs that can be personalised or I can create something totally unique to suit my couple’s special day. I pride myself on attention to detail with a professional and personal approach to each bespoke project.”
“Having studied Digital Textile Design in London I left the big smoke in 2008 and returned to the beautiful Hampshire countryside, where I am most at home and most inspired by the vibrancy of the fauna, flora and wildlife that surrounds my studio South of Winchester. I have a huge passion for drawing and painting and my background in the digital design industry lends itself to a harmonious mix of the hand crafted yet digitally designed aesthetic.”
“My studio is named after my gorgeous toddler Arthur Bear, who also loves to draw. It is challenging to balance family life with my passion for design and running my own business but it is also utterly fulfilling to provide such a personal and bespoke service to wonderful clients. I am currently expecting baby number 2, planning my own wedding for 2016 whilst launching my first wedding stationery collection this year – I like to keep busy, and as I said, designing and drawing is a passion so why not share the love.”
