Small Beginnings

Bright Stem is a small creative business run by myself. I’m an Artist and Designer based in a studio at the top of an old mill in Belfast. I produce handmade artwork and develop ethically manufactured products to be sold directly to you.

My design work is very playful and I love to jump about between disciplines. Many influences from early 20th century art and design feed into my work; from the Arts and Craft Movement, through to Art Deco, and the Bauhaus art school. (You can find out more about my creative process on The Idea page or on the Blog.)

  

Quality is key to everything I make

In my range of products from handmade sculptures to wrapping paper, attention to quality craft & design is combined with sourcing the best materials available.

Customers often tell me that after delivering a gift wrapped in Bright Stem paper the recipients are so happy with the quality of the paper and designs that they carefully fold the paper back up so it can be reused. I think there is no greater compliment than the thrifty use of your product.
