With a background in illustration and design, Trish has always enjoyed working with paper and card. Since creating life sized automata for her BA (hons) at Camberwell, publishing several pop-up books, and creating novelty children's books and illustration during her MA at Cambridge, there is always a surprise element somewhere waiting to jump out.

Crafty Sea Gal studio came about following a move to the coast in North Yorkshire; a combination of her papercraft skills and an acknowledgment of everyday life with seagulls.

Whether for children's book illustrations, commissions or Crafty Sea Gal products, collage and a 3d element will often appear. 

Trish holds papercraft workshops in the studio, at local museums and is available for booking. Please contact for further information on workshop options.

Also booking now for Art retreats.
