10 Little things about Lisa
1) She is passionate about things organic, recycled and all things that are gentle and harmonious with the planet.
2) She grew up around the corner from Dylan Thomas's house and grew up on the same street as a children's illustrator, a famous painter, a pottery artist, and an art professor. That's is quite a lot of artists on one street.
3) She studied Karate and Kung fu and knows how to use the nun chucks. She even planned to go to China to study Kung fu from a Shoalin Monk.
4) She actually studied psychology at Cardiff University but has always been sewing, developing her own negative and photographs, knitting since 7 years old (although she is not that good at it, her brother is better at knitting than her). And then there is the scribbling, painting and drawing that she has been doing since, well since she was little. She even once drew a picture with a jam sandwich. That was one of the rare times where her Mother was not pleased with her art.
5)Her pen is not used only to draw but also to write. She loves to write children's stories as well as draw them.
6)She has a stray cat which she looks after called Mr Butter Toast (because that is what he likes to eat). One time he ran off with her chocolate muffin -and yes the muffin was organic.
7) When she was a little girl she used to go horse riding on the beach and Gower Peninsula. She dreams of
owning her own horse one day.
8)On her way home from school in the summer she used to take homeless dogs from the RSPCA animal shelter for a walk.
9) She can play the piano. Her piano teacher was called Mr Bacon. He was super sweet and about 90 years old.
10) She is still a bit of a big kid. Although she doesn't slide down the stairs in her sleeping bag anymore. (Please don't try this at home.)
Here at Studio Noodles we care about people and the environment.
We decided from day one that we would print on recycled or FSC artisan papers using vegetable inks, and all our prints are packaged in biocompostable corn starch clear (plastic free) sleeves. We have been like this since day one, well before it was trendy.
Our stickers are made with paper, are printed with vegetable inks and use a water based adhesive. Even our clear stickers on our greeting cards sleeves are compostable and are plastic free. Our mailers are made from part recycled card and paper and our packaging fragile tape is made from paper and printed with vegetable inks. Where we can we hand write some of the addresses on our parcels to avoid using paper labels and where we do use labels we only use paper ones.
For our original art we use100% cotton rag. 100% Cotton rag paper is rare. They have long fibres which gives the paper exceptional strength and durability. The cotton rag comes from T-shirt off cuts. The paper is made by hand and is acid free.
Papermaking is totally dependent on water and Khadi water supply comes from their own bore well and from rainwater capture. No water is wasted. First the “virgin” water is used for white papers, then it is recycled for light, then dark colours and for crop fibre papers. No chlorine, bleaches or harmful chemicals are used in any of the cotton rag papers and the final run-off is pH neutral and has been passed for irrigation use by the Karnataka state authority. The water is also used on their organic farm.
We do not mass produce anything. We print in small batches (to avoid waste) and what we produce is artisan. Hence you won't find cheap prices. You will always find more about each product under its info section.
For every one A4 Print sold we will plant a tree with One Tree Planted.
