After years as a children’s fashion designer working in London Town, Andrea took her doodlings to Indigo in Paris and found that people wanted to purchase them. Andrea gave up freelancing for various companies in the big smoke and moved husband Paul, Nanook, Manky and Skud (3 cats) to a traditional cottage deep in the emerald countryside of Ireland. Cinnamon Joe Studio was born! Fast forward 10 years: Andrea, Paul, 3 cats and a new addition, Shiffley (a hairy dog), represent a truly talented group of international artists who, thankfully, have the same sense of humour. Cinnamon Joe Studio maintains an extensive, versatile portfolio for all aspects of the children’s apparel, stationary, bedding, scrapbooking, gift wrap, sticker market, interior and novelty markets. Newly added to the product list are children’s book illustrations and exclusive collections for Camelot Fabrics. Andrea still does freelance for companies, as well as managing the design studio. Her art is quirky, cute, humorous and colourful.
