Papagrazi’s Creative Director Rosy James has a background in both fine art and design, studying Surface Pattern Design at De Montfort University in Leicester, where her graduate collection of greetings cards was selected for the London New Designers Exhibition; Central St Martins in London where she began her career as a Fine Artist, and The University of Northampton where she completed her Masters Degree in Fine Art.
After moving to London Rosy decided to return to her design roots and together with Chartered Accountant husband Kevin set up Papagrazi to publish greetings cards.
Rosy has a broad spectrum of artistic interests which she draws on for her designs. Her most recent studies include Typography at City Lit London which has become the foundation of the Papagrazi Catalogue. Rosy has always enjoyed working with words and is building a varied collection of feel good cards that express all the fun, loving and meaningful sentiments we like to share.
