Living a dream and creating the most stunning handmade crayons! Learn more about The Crayon Bug below.
With my background in Art & Design, and graduating with a first class honours degree in Costume Design, it was inevitable that I would end up working in a visual field.
The Crayon Bug was started in the Summer of 2019 in a bid to provide plastic-free party favours for my son’s 3rd birthday party.
I hand make my extraordinary crayons from my workshop by the sea in coastal West Wales; taking my inspiration from nature, science and my serious love affair with the colour wheel.
The Crayon Bug is run to be eco-conscious; as a mother myself, I want to ensure I am doing everything I can to provide a happy and healthy world for my children’s future. To that end, every possible part of my process is plastic free. My crayons are packaged in reusable & recyclable gift boxes, or natural cotton bags.
I have two young children who are my number one product testers, and love to have the first go with new styles. They don’t hold back with their constructive criticism if they feel I need it, but I think this pushes me to be even better at what I do!
