Our beginnings

Shelleyandjane are a mother and daughter design team. We are always sharing ideas and learning new things together, even though we live 5 hours apart, and last year Shelley had the idea of starting this business so we could share some of the things we love to do and make.

The design that triggered it all.

I decided to design a strip of hand painted silk for Shelley to make into a lampshade for my standard lamp. The result was just lovely, even though the silk I was using was a nightmare to paint on and it took three attempts to get something we could use. It was well worth it, in the end.

Since then, I have done 4 courses on using Adobe Illustrator and gone from absolute newby to (I hope) reasonably competent. The lock down came at a fortuitous time!!

We have both spent quite a bit of time setting up this website and our shop, in amidst the designing and making, and look forward to sharing with you and hopefully seeing some of our products looking beautiful in your homes.

yours in creating,

Jane
