Illustrator & Designer
Hello, I'm Carolyn
I'm the illustrator and designer behind Paperpaintpixels. I hope you enjoy browsing through my shop and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or suggestions.
I'm an illustrator, graphic and textile designer living in south Somerset UK.
I love textured, patterned, happy & timeless designs that appeal to children and adults alike. I try to create every day - drawing, making and designing - I love the idea that my prints might bring a bit of joy into your life.
I have been trained in Textile Design and I’ve worked in the design industry as a web & graphic designer. I now live in a quiet and rural and beautiful part of South Somerset, UK with my husband, Geoff, and our three not so little ones ( My eldest are now at university- where did the time go!) and our dog Florence.
My love of animals and the natural world drives my work and business and is at the heart of everything I do. I've been working towards using recyclable, compostable and biodegradable packaging where possible and are dedicated to improving the sustainability of our business as we grow.
- I use FSC Certified, acid free tissue paper to wrap all of our products.
- I use Kraft tape which is fully recyclable and free from animal products.
- I use Biodegradable and Compostable cello bags which are made from vegetable starch.
-The orders are packed in 100% recycled cardboard envelopes and boxes.
- I try to repurpose packaging from our supplier deliveries and encourage our suppliers to go plastic free where possible.
The only single use plastic I use in the packaging is the recycled plastic end caps of the tubes I package the prints in. I'm looking for a solution!!
That the Early Years are the most important for development and future help and happiness.
Thr prints I design are created with these principles in mind and the values I work towards are:
My aim is to produce great designs that spark a sense of curiousity and wonder in little ones ....that might lead to a life long love of learning.....
Love is at the core of every print I create. I want to bring a smile so you can enjoy the little things together everyday. They are sent to you with love ❤
I strive to create great products, that don't hurt the earth and to give my customers a wonderful experience from start to finish.
