As the Tilly behind Tilly Scribbles, I'm a self-taught digital illustrator and designer with a passion for spreading happiness. I'm a Brit who moved to Wollongong, Australia, in 2020 (just before Covid kicked off). I started creating digital doodles during first lockdown to send to loved ones back in the UK during the struggles we were all facing. Their kind encouragements grew my confidence so that come January 2021 I was ready to take the next step; setting up a business.
At the beginning of 2021 I started making physical products such as greetings cards to sell locally. As a Geography graduate, I'm passionate about sustainability and minimising our impact on the environment. I sourced materials from eco-friendly local businesses and started designing and making greetings cards and art prints, ready to go into pop-up shop spaces in artisan collectives. My designs draw on inspirations from our Australian surroundings, as well as all things 'cute and pun-derful'. I hope my creations bring smiles to peoples faces.
I now have several shop spaces across the Illawarra (New South Wales), sell online and take wholesale requests. My range has expanded to include standard greetings cards, plantable greetings cards, gift tags, bookmarks, notebooks, colouring packs, A4 art prints, A3 art prints and mugs. I make by hand what I can, and if I have to outsource (eg. notebooks), I use small Australian eco-friendly businesses.
Thank you for taking an interest in my small business.
