About me

About-Me-pic-with-birdI loved art and design from a young age, and after leaving school with A-levels in Art and Photography as well as English, I took an Art Foundation course at St Albans before heading to Southampton where I completed a BA (Hons) degree in Graphic Design.

Having started out as an art researcher and worked as a magazine sub-editor and online producer, I joined the UK’s largest greeting card manufacturer, UK Greetings, where I worked for eight years.

Whilst at UK Greetings, I product-managed a number of successful card ranges and also returned to my first love to create my own greeting cards which consistently feature in top-seller lists and are available to buy in some of the biggest high-street and online retailers in the UK.

Businesses which sell my ranges include: WHSmith, Waterstones, Paperchase, Clinton Cards, Sainsbury’s, Boots and Tesco, and you can see some examples by clicking here.

After creating these greeting cards, I then started taking on individual commissions for friends and family – and when requests started to come in from further afield I realised I wanted to focus on creating these personal artworks and so Elizabeth Searle Designs was born!
