Ellie graduated from QCA in 2009 and shortly after gave birth to her eldest son. She then discovered the world of the WAHM (Work At Home Mum!) and began to see the need for unique Australian fabrics among the WAHM craft community. She grew up in a very crafty environment and was always strong in illustration, so when she discovered a site that would print her designs on-demand she developed a burning desire to figure out how to design fabric. She taught herself, through many, many hours of online learning and practice and then connected with these fellow ‘Mumpreneurs’, offering her designs and working together to create custom designs for their businesses. Her business has grown immensely from its humble beginnings and she now creates artwork for fabrics that are licensed and commissioned by companies like Cotton On Kids, Target and Spotlight.
