#MeetTheArtist - Paula Carley, Made by Oriana, and Pippa and Paper Designs

Updated: Apr 23

Paula Carley

Paula is a Manchester-based designer and photographer. Paula's work tends to fall into one of two camps: beautiful, light-hearted and joyful digital illustrations of animals created using Adobe Illustrator, and close-up (ish) photography of flora.

We are delighted to have some of Paula's beautiful work on sale in our pop-up shop. We have framed illustrations of a joyful animals like this fox (priced at £15), and some of her beautiful greetings cards (£2.50).

Paula is creative and community focused. As well as being able to share her work in our pop-up shop, we are lucky to have Paula as a team member in our brilliant #McrCreativeSpaces work with Manchester Libraries!

Made by Oriana

Made by Oriana is a Manchester-based crafty design company run by Dawn G. Uniting coffee-lovers across the city, Dawn produces crafty creations like these beautiful enamel pins. We fatefully stumbled across Dawn sketching some new quirky pin designs in The Spoon Inn. We are super excited to now be stocking these brilliant gifts (priced £7 each), and some of her tree decorations and keyrings too!

Pippa and Paper designs celebrates all things print and paper. Emily Eason is maker-in-chief of Pippa and Paper. When she's not manning market stalls and posting out purchases to her lucky etsy customers, she is producing beautiful illustrated prints and greetings cards, like the ones on offer in our pop-up festive shop. Works on offer range from greetings cards featuring super-cute cats tangled in christmas lights, and sweet sketches of animal friends, to heart-stopping line drawings like these framed hand studies (priced £15 each).
