Hi, my name is Alexia and I founded 'Alexia Claire' to share my passion for British Wildlife through my hand-illustrated wildlife stationery.
I design, create and sell stationery and giftware featuring British wildlife through my own website, NotOnTheHighStreet and Etsy as well as to retail and at local design and craft fairs.
Since I was a little girl, I loved reading stories such as The Wind in the Willows, Beatrix Potter and The Animals of Farthing Wood. Convinced that all British creatures were living secret little lives, unseen by busy adults, I began drawing my own little animal worlds and I'm still doing it to this day.
From my little studio in Thornton, Leicestershire, I paint all the illustrations for my stationery by hand while I look out onto the national forest that brings me so much joy and inspiration. I also draw inspiration from volunteering at my local Wildlife Hospital.
My business allows me to express my passion and delight my, awesome, customers!
