Welcome to Flamingo and Bear! I have always loved animals and nature and whilst on maternity leave I discovered a passion of painting animals for my little boy, Jacob. I wanted a nursery print that was not only cute and stylish but something that Jacob could learn from and capture his imagination. From a very young age I have always loved creating paper goods that mean something to someone, from handmade cards to wedding stationery, however after painting my first animal, I fell completely in love and so began Flamingo and Bear!
Flamingo and Bear ’s designs are full of magical whimsical illustrations and through my love of watercolour and nature I have created a world of prints to not only be pieces of art but to inspire and educate the younger generation to the beauty of our planet.
Studies show teaching your child about real animals and showing them in a positive light can help them develop a greater level of empathy for animals and be more curious, respectful and appreciative of all living things.
I want Flamingo and Bear to be as eco friendly as possible and make as little impact on our world. So everything at F&B is built upon this value, from sourcing printers with the same values, ensuring all our packaging is recyclable or compostable. I believe every animal matters so I am proud to be partnered with One Tree Planted, donating money from sales to planting trees for chimpanzees.

We need our children to become future ambassadors for the care and well-being of animals, so that all living creatures including the endangered species can thrive and survive beyond our lifetime.
