Sometimes an event comes along which changes life’s path in a radically wonderful way and in a mix of fate and daring do, Arts Star Cards was born at the beginning of 2019 – a new kid on the very, very large block!
Karen Jones is the Creative Director, an artist, illustrator and designer for over 30 years and James Jones, Design Engineer and willing and able numbers man.
The ethos of Arts Star Cards is to celebrate great art, design and literature. Arts Star Cards understand design and are setting trends with their beautiful original artworks. If you’re looking for gifts and greeting cards that celebrate the beauty and humour in our world, that are a little different from what’s out there, that doff a cap to great illustration, that give more than a nod to the rather dry sense of humour in this part of the world, then we are for you.
Our greeting cards have something for everyone from the ‘Kushti Card’ range – paying homage to traditional folk art, the ‘Modern Mary and the Naughty Girls’ collection – decorative ‘portraits’ partnered with witty one-liners or the ‘Party Animals’ series which takes a light-hearted look at a night on the tiles!
Not forgetting the little ones, there’s the charming ‘Cheeky Monkeys’ and ‘Buggy Wuggs’ range.
If you’re looking for something a little quieter, we have the ‘Blank Expressions’ range, design led illustrations using inanimate objects to celebrate special occasions. Or if loud is your thing there’s our Graphiti range, inspired by urban graphics of the last thirty years.
All Arts Star Cards have the same stamp of stylish quality and originality. Best wishes or Birthday – there is a new, fresh, vibrant card from Arts Star perfect for every occasion.
There’s the Arts Star Aviary – papier mache birds of all denominations from the blue tit to something not quite of this earth! Perfect to adorn any room adding a quirky touch to any environment. Every bird is made by Karen Jones from the humble papier mache and glue armature to the final, beautifully decorated finished bird.
Arts Star jewellery is all handmade and hand painted – from the funky ‘Ziggy Stardust’ to the exquisitely delicate folk art earrings – all the earrings are ‘one-offs’, no two the same so you truly are getting a work of art on your earlobe!
