Noisy and Wonky

Little Noisy Miner is the place for cute stationery and simple home decor. Adriana Anwar considers herself to be an accidental artist who creates line drawings and puts them onto stationery and homewares in a simple but highly effective way, to create a collection that will be available at the Handmade Market for the first time on 10 & 11 December. We asked her our three questions.

  1. What is your business all about?
    Little Noisy Miner is about my little wonky line drawings, in black and white, with a story. My drawings are small and simple, printed on little handmade notecards or linen tea towels. I draw random everyday objects. The focus is always on the objects and the story behind them. For me, it’s a personal story of life’s unexpected journey, of family and friends, of going to new places, of birthdays and celebrations, of learning new things like riding a bicycle for the first time, or driving your first car. It’s the simplest story everyone can relate to, and that’s what Little Noisy Miner wonky line drawings are all about. It’s never really about the native birds, the noisy miners.
  1. What made you apply to Handmade?
    For makers and crafters like myself, working alone can be quite isolating. Handmade is a great platform to meet other like-minded makers and crafters who are going through the same experience with all the joy and struggles. It is also an opportunity to showcase Little Noisy Miner’s new wonky line drawings, and to meet new friends and fans alike.
  1. What will Santa be bringing you this year?
    Between a fancy multi-purpose, stainless-steel crafting toolset or 5 elves who can get things done quicker. Oh tough one!

Thank for sharing Adriana. We are in love with your wonky line drawings and can’t wait to see the full collection in a couple of weeks!
