UK artist, Lisa Jones first began turning her illustrations
into greeting cards in 2000. Produced primarily for family and friends,
her designs soon found their way into stores across Europe.

Lisa’s Wigwam collection is printed by using vegetable derived inks on 100% recycled paper. The first range designed for the collection was Kapok Creatures, (shown above) – a salute to stuffed animals made from retro fabrics in the 70s. A 20th century studio pottery then supplied inspiration for her second range, Patterned Pals.
“We originally began printing cards with a laughably high-minded eye to design, intending to make only intelligent cards for adults. Though the few animals in the range soon proved most popular, their growth was due far more to our obvious enjoyment in devising a crazy cast of characters than any market-driven response.” says Lisa.
It’s obvious this successful artist finds comfort in the creatures she creates. Visit Lisa Jones Cards for stockists and to view her entire collection of unique cards.
