If you've been hanging around The Beetle Shack for a while you would've heard Lauren's name pop up more than once. Merrick is a talented illustrator with gift for innocent, endearing characters (ehum, much like those pictured above) and fruity typography. Her work is contemporary whilst maintaining individuality and creative integrity. Gauche, watercolour and high quality paper complete her kit. However, her skills aren't limited to the paint brush. Merrick is also available for customised blog headers, wedding invitations, birth announcements (that was ours that you can see above), party invitations and graphic design. She has recently opened an online store to sell prints of her beautiful watercolour works and a range of fabulous cards.
It must also be said that Lauren is a darling friend to our family. She is a gorgeous thing who comes and plays with my children with such excitement and intentionality that her visits always leave me smiling from ear to ear.
You can find Lauren Merrick Illustration on Facebook here, read her inspiring blog here, check our her portfolio here or shop from her range of cards and prints here (currently on a massive sale). If you would like to order a customised print, card or blog header please contact Lauren here for a quote.
