I'm Amy. I'm the creator of Pretty Palm Tree and the graphic designer, illustrator, hand-letterer, stylist and blogger behind all the PPT content. I am based in Australia, on Queensland's central coast where the surrounding beautiful bush and beach create the perfect backdrop for a creative design studio!
Growing up on Sydney's Northern Beaches, I loved exploring the beach and bush and have always enjoyed anything creative – craft, painting, cooking, interior styling and gardening.
Graduating from a Bachelor of Design at UNSW, I worked in Sydney for 9 years as a Designer at Real Living Magazine, Australian House & Garden Magazine and St Thomas' Anglican Church. Getting married brought me 16 hours north to beautiful Queensland, where I started Pretty Palm Tree.
On the weekend I love the simple things as well as the adventurous! If I'm not exploring local towns, beaches, waterholes or islands, you'll find me enjoying slow mornings making breakfast, riding my cruiser along the river for a swim, enjoying a walk through the bush or dinner with friends.
I'd love to work with you, so take a little look around my website! I specialise in creating hand-drawn illustrations, watercolour paintings and hand-lettering for wedding and event stationery. You can shop my ready-made stationery and art collections, or if you have something specific in mind for your special occasion you can go to the Bespoke Stationery page for more information and to start a conversation.
Pretty Palm Tree is also available for graphic design for business branding, promotion and layout. Take a look at my portfolio and contact me to make your ideas and vision a reality!
Hope to hear from you soon!
As for the name Pretty Palm Tree...
1// I'm Australian east coast born and bred and have always lived near the beach. Much of my work is influenced by the coast and palm trees are everywhere here!
2// Palm trees are evergreen, dropping each frond they grow, but never all together! I hope this represents my learning and growing more and more in the creativity I've been given.
3// The Bible says "The righteous will flourish like a palm tree". It is God who has given me the gifts I have and has brought me this far and I trust he will keep carrying me and I will continue to grow because of Him.
