Great British Birds by Amber Elise

I saw these colourful prints recently and had to let the artist Amber Elise know how much I liked them. We are big bird lovers here, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you will know that our wedding cake made by our fab friend Juliet was inspired by birds and so was the poem piece read by our lovely friend, Lou.

Most of my childhood was spent in the countryside and I had a book, where I used to tick off off the birds in it once I had spotted them. Do you remember those ? Great memories.

Amber Elise is a Bristol based illustrator and screen printer who takes inspiration by the cut outs of the artist Matisse, colours of Andy Warhol and music from David Bowie..  a girl after my own heart. 7xhj4TVb9xQ4NK2YLEQzJVGLsTkN4i3FviNY_j3ssUw

Not only does her online shop offer these beautifully bold Limited Edition Prints along with zebras, owls and whimsical messages in 2 different sizes – you can also buy sets of her high quality individually wrapped, boxed cards. Great for your own home or a thoughtful gift to those in your life who love anything quintessentially English. I have some here and will do my best to share them with special friends but they’re so alluring, I might hang on to them .. just for a bit. :)

I love Ambers’ sharp use of colour – such great definition. You must have a read of her Creative Projects – they are all interesting but I was particularly drawn to the one about her transforming a launderette with bespoke wallpaper. It looks amazing ! Have a look at it here.
