I have been lucky enough to live in some very beautiful places, growing up on Dartmoor and living near Tetbury for the past 25 years, with 3 years in New York and 3 years on the continent as a bonus.  So my inspiration has been all things rural with a New York twist and a bit of continental style.  My love of horses, design and business have evolved into Rural Wrappings.


I hope you will find the range a bit out of the ordinary.  The concept is simple and can be summed up in a few words;  ‘smart Art with a country heart’.  To me a product should be good value, useful, of good quality and strong design, local and inspiring.  Now, more than ever, we all have less to spend, but still like to give.  What costs the least is so often the most special.

The growing range features Art by talented Artists who are fellow equestrians, and it shows.  The stationery range is produced and printed within a 10 mile radius of home and all of the ranges that are exclusive to Rural Wrappings are made for me in the UK with the exception of one.  The art is exclusive to my designs, therefore very unique and ever changing.  The designs embrace rural life and the countryside and will hopefully make you smile, remind you of someone or a day you had in the field …………
