About Me

Femme Boss 2020 -20.jpg

Hello! I'm Helen and I'm the Illustrator behind Helen Richmond Design

For as long as I can remember, I've loved drawing.  I would create cards for family and friends and would spend hours doodling on scraps of paper.  That passion inspired me to do a degree in History of Art at York University followed by a postgraduate in Art Gallery and Museum Studies. After graduating in 2010, I went into the charity sector where I worked as a Fundraiser for seven years.

In 2016, I started selling my cards and prints to friends and family.  This developed into a small Etsy shop and five years later, I'm stocked in 14 UK shops and sell my cards and prints globally.

My designs are inspired by my love of the outdoors and adventure.  I create bold and colourful designs inspired by the places and the things I love to do like running and cycling.  Through my unique, contemporary designs, I want to inspire others to find joy.​

Any questions, please get in touch.
