I thought I might start doing a quick introduction to each market so that you can have a sneak peek at all the wonderful businesses who are taking part in the online market!
It will give you a chance to have a browse, follow them on social media and form a shopping list for market day! However remember some of the businesses may be offering special offers, freebies or discounts so it’s worth waiting until Friday to do any actual shopping …
On Friday 28th May fifteen small businesses will be getting involved in the Art and Stationery online market. Each of the businesses creates and sells things that will help you add to your stationery stash … so let’s see what they have to offer!

Katie Crossland Art
Katie Crossland is a mixed media artist currently specialising in animal art. She uses bright colours and paints in an uninhibited way, capturing the essence and spirit of the animal she paints. From turtles to penguins to lions, there are plenty of animals to choose from. She sells original artwork as well as art prints, in a wide range of sizes.
Capturing that all important ‘twinkle in the eye’ is what makes my art so popular. I have always had a passion for painting, particularly animals for my own pleasure and I’ve found that people really appreciate the way I focus on capturing the animal’s personality and character and really ‘bring them to life’. My art is mostly watercolour, acrylic and oils. I am fundraising for some animal charities that are close to my heart, particularly International Animal Rescue, to which I am very committed, and I enjoy painting for them. Profits from prints of the baby Orang Utan ‘Punk Baby’ all go to this charity as well as 10% of profits from ‘Big Brother’ and ‘Punk Sister’.

Punny Bunny Doodles
Hi I’m Jess and I’m a pun-aholic !
I have a passion for puns, the type that make people groan and roll their eyes! The cheesier the better! I have loved making art since I was little but have recently rekindled my love for drawing, mainly in the form of cute doodles. It makes me so happy when someone enjoys one of my happy little doodles, and I hope it brings them joy (as Marie Kondo would say) when they purchase one of my creations!
