Hello, I’m Rhian, an illustrator and photographer working from my home studio in Cardiff, Wales.
With a degree in Furniture Design, for the past 7 years I’ve been working as an account manager in the field of handmade furniture and fabrics. What I missed though was the freedom to create, and so I took a leap, left my job, and I’m now busy setting up my own company; Pluan Designs.
Pluan Designs (pronounced ‘plea-ann’, a play on the Welsh word ‘pluen’ which means feather) began as a desire to be more creative, a desire to spend my time working on something fulfilling and rewarding. I started keeping this blog to document the use photography as a means of art therapy, in my own personal journey with mental wellbeing.
It then grew and with my passion for making birthday cards and paintings for friends and family, and is now a happy mix of both photography and illustrations.
Over the next few months I’ll be expanding my range of illustrations and designs for future greeting cards and prints. I’ll keep you posted!
In the meantime, here is a picture of me for your amusement:
Thank you for stopping by.
