Sheffield life ILLUSTRATOR Janine George is based in Sheffi eld from where she runs Dilys Treacle Treasures offering a mixture of ranges, from collage designs using vintage fabrics, to pen and ink illustrations in vivid colours. She launch 55 new designs at PG Live, including word and sentiment designs for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, 22 male and female birthday cards, a set of unisex Valentine’s cards and some new baby cards, including one for twins. Janine,


who moved from


Somerset to Sheffi eld in 2007 to be with her true love, said: “Sheffi eld has to be one of the most


creative places I know, and I’m inspired by something new every day.


“I love taking photos of things which catch my eye and like blogging about stuff. I’m always posting pictures to Instagram, and checking out what other people have posted with the Sheffi eld hashtag. “I’m lucky to live close to the city


centre, while having the Peak District and picturesque towns like Bakewell nearby too. “Sheffi eld is full of talented people, beautiful buildings, amazing history, the best music, independent shops and artist’s studios, and most importantly there are always opportunities to get involved. I never imagined I would end up living in Sheffi eld, but I don’t think I would change it now. “One of the things I love most about living in Sheffi eld, is that there are loads of independent shops – there are plenty of opportunities to get your work seen.” T: 07989 663235 www.dilystreacletreasures.co.uk
