We are story starters: Popsiebelle is a creative play, brand for little imaginations. Our products collectively create a giant colourful storybook filled with characters that need their stories told, adventures’ to be had and imaginations to inspire. We believe in growing imaginations and ideas. The goal of our brand is for children to create their own stories and worlds from our characters / products, thereby promoting creative thinking from a young age. We want children to not just consume, as is the norm these days, but rather to create, contribute and to continue developing / keeping their unbound imagination and creativity alive.
I have always made and designed things ever since I can remember.Popsieblle has been a project that I have been working on for about 6 years. She is my imagination in full colour. I taught at the Vancouver Film School in Canada and that is when my first inklings of character design started – one of my students had created a wonderful illustrated creature and I was hooked. I then started doodling and so began Popsiebelle, she encompasses all of my work. Illustration, storytelling, print and tactile felt objects.
