Hello! I'm a Wiltshire based, freelance artist with 20 years experience in the greetings card industry. If you are a publisher looking for new designs, please do get in touch via my contact page (link below). Although all of the work on this site is currently licensed, I'm happy to take new commissions.
A bit about me: after studying Natural History Illustration at art school, I spent 10 years in media and marketing and then returned to design and creative work. I speculatively sent some work off to Phoenix Trading back in 2003 and my career took off from there. I've since produced work for UK companies Marks & Spencer, Woodmansterne, The RHS, Artko, Bronnley and publishers in Europe and the USA.

I started Sally Swannell as a business in 2009. Since then my products have been sold into The National Trust, John Lewis, the RHS (also printing RHS commissioned Christmas cards for 2 years) and around 150 independent shops and garden centres. I have created and developed new greetings, stationery, advent and homeware ranges and built my business from the ground up, I’m very proud of what I’ve achieved, having worked with some great clients and customers. Wrendale Designs have subsequently licensed much of my current work for retail and wholesale.
I have now closed my business in order to pursue interests close to my heart in wildlife conservation and to spend my time more creatively.
