Inkdandy Studio is an art and greetings card brand created by cotswolds based artist and designer Lizzie Povey. Having always had an interest in the arts from a young age, Lizzie went on to study a degree in performance costume design at Edinburgh College of Art. After many years of working in various creative industries from theatre and fashion, to homeware and ceramics, and a few years of travelling and working abroad in-between! Lizzie set out to create her own small company, designing imagery that she loves with the idea of turning her passion for design into products that hopefully you will love too.
With her love for travel and the outdoors, Lizzie takes a lot of her inspirations from the world around her and the beauty and character of nature. Using striking colour palettes and a great sense of fun, she enjoy’s creating her characterful and bold illustrations for print, with exciting future plans to develop these for homewear and stationary.
Lizzie’s current collections ‘COUNTRY GENTS’ and ‘SHEEP’ are both inspired by growing up in the cotswold countryside. Having always been surrounded by the local wildlife and rearing her own flock of sheep along side her dad, she wanted her first two collections to link back to happy memories of a rural childhood. With humour and fun being dominant aspects of Lizzie’s personality, she takes great enjoyment in creating designs that make people smile through her childlike creations.
With her passion for nature and love of seeing and exploring the world, being as eco friendly as she can to protect these are of high importance to her brand. Inkdandy Studio is proud to say that it only uses biodegradable and compostable packaging on all greetings cards, notecards and un-framed prints.
