So this was where it all began. Autumn 2013. A little dissatisfied with corporate London life and eager to get her creative socks on, Katie Cardew started drawing illustrations of her friends and families houses. They went down a treat. She had a few little stands at local events (the photo is of Katie at her first show – Stamford Junior School Christmas Fair) and in no time, the bespoke illustration orders were coming in thick and fast. She began her fine art print range, mainly illustrating buildings in her hometown of Stamford, Lincolnshire, as well as country pursuits and British wildlife. A few shows, a very simple website and a lot of enthusiasm seemed to go a long way – no one was more surprised than Katie when her little venture started to take off!
