Alex was born in the village of Shotley Bridge in county Durham in the North East of England. She first began printing her own greetings cards in a very small way in 1998 and her range grew slowly for a few years. In 2005 she made the decision to expand her card business in a bigger way by releasing 60 new cards. The response was huge and within 2 years she had expanded her card ranges and moved on to selling wrapping paper and art prints. Her business is located in an old sawmill by the banks of the Derwent in the village of Ebchester. It is a natural haven for all sorts of wildlife with weasels, otters and just about every garden bird you can imagine likely to schedule an appearance at any moment. It is an environment that perfectly compliments the artwork that she publishes today.
Berni lives and works from her home studio in Worcestershire surrounded by beautiful countryside. She has been creating greetings cards for over twenty years and in that time her range of ‘Whispers on Wings’ fairies designs sold over half a million cards worldwide last year alone. Berni has developed her own individual style using multi layered handmade papers. She produces images that have a delicate soft three dimensional quality and texture. Because of this it is said that her pictures can be ‘touched with the eyes’.
