The Sunshine Bindery
The Sunshine Bindery is the colourful creative dream belonging to Somerset based illustrator and bookmaker Mell Oliver. Born & bred in sleepy Dorset, UK, much of my life has been spent by the ocean, exploring the beautiful English countryside or getting lost in my sketchbook. After studying & a little bit of traveling, The Sunshine Bindery was born – a delightfully joyful & Earth-kind stationery business, designed to spread sunshine with uplifting messages, bright & playful colours and a whole lot of love. I am a huge stationery nerd & own way too many notebooks, many of them half filled with endless journal entries & odd daydream scribbles. Nowadays, when I'm not creating and designing in my Sunshine studio, you can find me camping out in the forest with my life partner Jon and our converted campervan Maisie, hiking up mountains or wild swimming, which is where a lot of my inspiration comes from!
