Little Paisley Designs

Illustrator and Painter 



Little Paisley Designs creates handmade jewellery, prints, stationery and gifts featuring quirky hand painted illustrations of British wildlife, Flora & Fauna. With a penchant for painting little birds, cacti and mushrooms!


Little Paisley Designs was founded in late 2014 as a complimentary creative outlet to commercial design work, and an excuse to make beautiful products for myself! Following a degree in print design, I realised the handmade nature of the design industry was where my interest lay, and Little Paisley Designs was born. Little Paisley Designs products are whimsical and colourful, with a playful nod to the traditional.


Our products will brighten up your home or outfit! Each product starts life as a hand-painted illustration. Working in predominantly watercolours and gouache paints, artwork is then scanned in and assembled. All items are either handmade in my home studio, or printed using British companies, and then packaged and assembled by hand.


Meet the maker:  Ellie Longhurst


Hi, I’m Ellie, I’m the face behind Little Paisley Designs, I live and work a stones throw away from paper Plane, in beautiful Bishopston.


Working from my sunny attic studio in Bristol, helped by two naughty cats and fuelled by lots of cups of tea, I spend my days painting and making!


I love spending my days painting nature inspired illustrations, and having a rummage in the local charity shops and book shops of Gloucester Rd for inspiration.
