About me


 

 

 Hello and welcome to Zoe Gibbons! 

I’m a mixed-media artist – creating designs on my vintage sewing machine – which are then translated into laser cut or combined with watercolour and textiles to create original, quirky pictures, cards, stationary & home wares.                                                                                                                                                   Freehand machine embroidery gives the designs an organic fluidity. Items are handmade to order and beautiful personalised using details provided by the customer.       

 A lot of my inspiration comes from the natural environment - trees, paper and texture please me and I'm happiest out and about collecting & sketching visual ideas.​

My business (accidentally) started 6 years ago when I had 2 young children and a local cafe advertised for artists to display their work. I needed a creative outlet so I started making handmade embroidered cards and pictures. 

 

After developing a special gift for my sister's wedding I now also offer laser cut wedding day items including alternative drop top guest books and table styling.

I work from a lovely studio in Bristol, UK. I sell online and in Bristol shops.

I welcome new ideas, questions and commissions – often the best inspirations have come from customer requests!
