Faye is a freelance illustrator, designer and artist based in Glasgow. Graduating from The Glasgow School of Art in 2003, Faye has always been passionate about hand drawn art. Faye established Paper Cuckoo in 2022, a venture born from her love of illustration and striking, distinctive pieces of art.
Faye gathers inspiration from the natural world, in particular birds, flowers and plants. Each piece is meticulously designed and entirely unique. Daydreams and stories weave a strong thread through Paper Cuckoo products, visible in the glint of copper leaf or the twirl of a bird’s tail.
Paper Cuckoo produces a variety of interior and giftware products including framed illustrations, prints, wall and hanging decorations, freestanding illustrated pieces, garlands, bell-jar birds and paper flowers and plants. Paper Cuckoo accepts bespoke commissions and offers personalised products. All materials are sustainably sourced, from Scottish suppliers where possible, and beautifully gift wrapped in eco-friendly material.
As well as paper cut and hand gilded gold and copper leaf, Paper Cuckoo products feature typography with a local twist, pastels and bobbin frames. With many more ideas in the making, always.
A Paper Cuckoo piece is a truly one-off gift and will be treasured forever by the recipient.
