Looking around in commercial shops I had always found it difficult to find cards featuring African and Caribbean characters which also had an original style. My family often ordered cards from abroad or became selective in the cards they chose. So, in 2018 in a small flat in East London, Aziza Illustrates was born!
I started to create homemade greeting cards for family and friends in 2011 and found my passion. To see the joy on their faces upon receiving a bespoke card was unforgettable. Each was original and made with the receiver in mind.
During the 2020 lockdowns and whips being on furlough, Aziza Illustrates grew and became an illustration business as well as a greeting card company. With so many people reaching out to me I was able to grow and develop my skill set to provide exactly what was needed!
The name Aziza means cherished, respected, precious and beloved and I hope you will feel this way when you give or receive an item from Aziza Illustrates.
