Bobbie Print is home to a collection of illustrated, printed wall art and greeting cards.
All prints and greeting cards are manufactured here in the UK and where possible we look to use independent suppliers and support other small businesses. Bobbie Print also strives to be eco-friendly, choosing recycled or FSC certified papers whenever we can and ensuring that all our online orders are dispatched using as little plastic as possible.
Originally from Yorkshire but now based in West Sussex (via Glasgow) Victoria Oatway is the creative designer and illustrator behind Bobbie Print (Hello! That's me!)
Victoria worked as an in-house designer in the interior textile industry for over 15 years designing for several studios including Ashley Wilde Group and Natasha Marshall Ltd creating fabrics, wallpapers and other interior textile products for a variety of UK and European clients. (I even got to work on products for the 2012 London Olympic Games!)
Victoria finds inspiration most often in the natural world, flowers and animals feature regularly in her designs and she strives to bring character and a touch of irreverent, light-hearted humour to each print or illustration.
Victoria's background in textile design is clearly recognisable in her prints. Her bright, bold and confident yet accessible colour palettes are frequently complimented whilst her illustrations, particularly those of animals resonate, evoking memories and stories (usually hilarious stories!)
But why Bobbie...
One of Victoria's earliest memories is sitting down with pens and paper and drawing with her Mum.
Creativity was always something Victoria and her Mum shared and that’s why when it came to deciding on a name for Bobbie Print she chose hers...Bobbie.
