Hello! I'm Rebecca, illustrator behind Rebecca Rickards Design. My small business started when I was commuting on the Northern Line and was dreaming of being in Cornwall. Every bit of time off I would jump in the car and head down the A303 to my favourite county. I had done my degree in graphic design at Falmouth University where I fell in love with Cornwall after living there for 4 years. After working in fashion for a few years in London, I've now left my London days and I've now gone full time with my dream small business in Cornwall with my cocker spaniel puppy, Bertie.
I love illustrating everyday Cornish life, I feel so inspired whether its a beautiful fishing village or a vast north coast beach, I just want to draw it! I always have a mini sketchbook in my bag when I'm out and about incase I see something that needs to be on a greeting card.
Why greeting cards? From a really young age I loved making greeting cards to send to friends and family and to see the joy on people's faces when they opened it gave me so much happiness! I love to know when I'm designing my cards, they are going to make someone else happy.
I am now selling my cards globally and I'm stocked in 15 UK shops. If you are a shop looking for gorgeous Cornish cards, let's have a chat!
