Introducing Auld Connection

Hello! 👋

We are a small business from Edinburgh on a mission to bring you fun and colourful designs! Our work is inspired by travels in Scotland and beyond, wandering like tourists in our home city and a love of colour, nature and animals (cats in particular!)

Auld Connection is the work of me, Fiona, with an occasional guest appearance from my partner Arnaud and our two furry, cheeky cats. I originally studied jewellery design (you might notice some influences!) and meanwhile have always loved to draw. My cards and prints for Auld Connection tend to begin life as wee sketches and doodles. I then translate these into digital illustrations on my tablet, drawing with an iPen and adding layers of colour and texture. I love working in this way as I can play with composition and get to create my own little worlds! I get a lot of inspiration from my home city - the iconic skylines, the changing skies and all the green spaces to be found in the heart of town 🌿 

Auld Connection is all about the connections between people and places, whether as a tourist or a local, and also the connections we have with each other when giving and receiving cards and gifts. We hope you might find a print with a view that sparks a favourite memory or card with a cat lookalike! (If you do, we would love to hear!🐱)

Enjoy having a look around and keep in touch! 💕
