BUBBA & SQUIDGE

You'll have noticed all the wonderful illustrations dotted around the website, on mailouts, gift cards, banners, newsletters...everywhere & anywhere I can include them! That's the work of Katie, owner & founder of Bubba & Squidge - home of excellent doodles. About a year ago, Katie sent me some watercolour illustrations of some refashion pieces I had made and I couldn't believe my luck. Not only was it so kind of her to even have done them, they were wonderful! I knew I needed to use her services and this year, I finally got round to it.

WHO IS BUBBA & SQUIDGE?
Katie was born, raised and still lives in the Wye Valley (one of our favourite places, too!). Her work is inspired by her father (Bubba) and her son (Squidge) - in fact the very thing she was in trouble for at school is now what she does for a living, doodling. It was meant to be!

HOW DID IT START?
After graduating from her degree in Art Practices, Katie found comfort in sitting and doodling cards for friends and family in the evenings - another one burning the midnight oil! She then set up her Etsy shop and fits her work around being a full time carer for her son who has ASD. Illustrating and creating brings her so much joy and I think you can see that in her work.
