Thinking back, it seems some time ago since I introduced me (aka Jac) to you all – and since so many more people have joined me via the various social media channels (I believe that’s the technical term?) that I thought perhaps you’d like to know more about the person behind the drawing board. If nothing else it may help you understand the madness that is Jac’s Little Welsh Studio. Here I am…
I do hope I haven’t frightened too many of you off! Anyway – me, what can I say. Well, my actual name is Jackie, but it’s been shortened to Jac by so many people for so long that’s what I became 🙂
I love to draw. My parents will tell you, I first started drawing when I was about 2 or 3 yrs old. And they will take great delight in telling you that if I didn’t have paper, then the walls would do (oops).
So, all through childhood I drew. All the time. And then I went to college and I studied Illustration. And then… well, I stopped. I got a “proper” job, a mortgage, a car – all the lovely things you want when you are young.
Now, I’m not so young, and about 3 years ago I picked up a pencil again and started to doodle. Then I started to doodle some more – I posted one or two pages on my personal Facebook page, and a friend suggested I set up a page just for my drawings. And Jac’s Studio was born.
Nowadays, my most favourite thing is to lock myself in my studio, surrounded by my special items (toadstool, Teddy, inspiration board), with a cup of coffee (lots of coffee) and draw.
And I am lucky – people seem to like what I do, people like you have helped grow my business.
My most favourite thing about my business is that from my happy place, I can spread happiness, with my cheerful, colourful and positive pieces. Which leads me neatly to my motto “Making the World A Happier Place – One Doodle at a Time” .
I am one girl, on a mission to spread happiness 🙂
And, if you would like to buy something I would LOVE you to visit my online ETSY shop (or you can contact me to discuss a bespoke commission piece).
I know it’s a cliché – but you all are my inspiration. Connecting with people, them telling me what they are up to, what they like, what their day has been like – it all goes in Jac’s head – and out pops a doodle (well, maybe not instantly – but ideas come from being social)!
Well – that’s enough about me (for now) – hope to see you all soon.
Till next time,
