Up and coming Somerset illustrator Angie Spurgeon has secured a deal to have a range of her products stocked by a popular garden attraction in the county from this month onwards (November, 2013).
The Gardens Shop at Hestercombe Gardens in Cheddon Fitzpaine, Taunton, now stocks Angies Life is Sweet cards, wrap and notecards, as well as her framed family tree prints. Angie, who lives in Bridgwater, explained: Im thrilled that Hestercombe Gardens is now stocking my products.
They all look great in the bright and cheery gift shop. People can pick up my Life is Sweet cards, which include A balanced diet is a cake in each handâ and âStressed is desserts spelt backwards. My popular framed family tree prints, which can be personalised as they come with individually cut aperture holes, allowing the owner to place large locket-sized snaps of their friends or family behind, are also available. These make a fantastic and very personal gift. Angies designs start as hand-drawn doodles and are then scanned and coloured digitally.
She wants to put a bit of warmth and colour back into the world and are all created to make people smile when they look at them. She added: Hestercombe Gardens will also be stocking my Christmas cards and recipe cards from later this month (November, 2013) onwards. Angie, who has two young daughters, is a freelance illustrator and designer.
Having graduated with a degree in Graphic Design (Illustration) from the University of Plymouth, she spent 12 years working in the advertising industry before going freelance and launching her online shop under the name Artwork by Angie. Hannah White, Retail Manager at Hestercombe Gardens, said: Were really pleased to be stocking Angies work. Her pieces are really lovely and it is great to be supporting a local artist. Hestercombe Gardens consists of 50 acres of lakes, cascades, tranquil woodland walks and formal terraces. It is a unique combination of three centuries of design including gardens from the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras.
