I create handmade paper lamps, lampshades, and homeware featuring my own hand drawn illustrations.
My inspiration comes from the natural world, patterns and graphics. Each lamp, lampshade and candle cover is finished with a solid wooden ring that completes the natural and simple look of the product.
I grew up loving painting, art and creating things and have always had an ongoing creative project of some sort be that illustrating painting and sewing. I always came back to illustration but felt something was missing as I wanted to design something ‘physical’ that could sit in my home. I began to explore whether I could put my illustrations on lamps. However, in truth had no idea of how realistic or feasible my idea was, therefore I began to spend many hours researching how to make lighting and various homeware. I finally managed it and A Northern Light was created!
I absolutely love A Northern Light. It puts a smile on my face every day and fills me full of excitement, creativity and happiness.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
