All about Le Cheval Fou, straight from the horse’s mouth (see what I did there?)

I’m Maria, a.k.a Le Cheval Fou. I’m an experienced graphic designer with more years under my belt than I care to admit, and a weakness for stationery, in particular, notebooks (which I always seem to need more of!).

As a graphic designer I have spent my entire working life designing for other people. And even though I have been running my own design business, Tigerlilly Designs, since 2006, the name Le Cheval Fou and the concept for it is something that has been running around my mind the entire time.

Le Cheval Fou provides me with the FREEDOM to choose what I work on and when, to bring CREATIVITY to all aspects of my life, and allows me to not only achieve HAPPINESS by sharing it with others, such as you.

I want to fill this small corner of the internet with beauty by creating fun and original artwork, prints and cards for you to enjoy and share. Our original, colourful zentangle art, bespoke gifts and mindfulness colouring sheets combining patterns, fun photography and colourful illustration are designed to brighten your family home. Our quirky art prints and hand-finished artworks are created with families in mind and are great for decorating your home, creating gallery walls, brightening an office space or child’s bedroom or even sending as gifts. All made with love and sent from our home to yours.
