Amy Grimes: I studied illustration at university, and so I've been creating work for a lot longer than I started selling it under the name Hello Grimes. In 2017, I started to post my work online and considered setting up shop when friends and family discovered what I was drawing and kept asking to buy them as prints. Since then it's sort of snowballed into selling them in person, through a website, at craft markets, and then eventually through wholesale to retailers; it was definitely an organic progression and not planned at all but really happy with where it's led!
Some of the prints are inspired by places I've been (Rockpools was inspired after a trip to Cornwall), but a lot of them are also imagined or inspired by books. As you can tell, it's pretty much all landscapes and plant illustrations, so sometimes it's just somewhere I'd rather be when London feels too urban.
