Working from her home studio, set in the midst of the idyllic English countryside, Berni Parker has developed a highly successful global business. However, the heart and soul of her company, as well as her inspirations, are still very much centred on a love of life, family, friends, her own whimsical imaginings and the gentle beauty of the Worcestershire countryside.
Graduating with a degree in graphic design and specialising in illustration, Berni was involved in the UK greeting card industry for 20 years before making the decision to branch out on her own. Her original launch concepts of the 'Whispers on Wings' and 'Ladies who love life' greeting card ranges enjoyed phenomenal success.
Nowadays the business is very much a family affair. With husband John and sons, Ben, Jack and Sam assisting in the areas of administration, product design and operations when required Berni herself is free to devote herself to creating and illustrating the wonderfully whimsical designs for which she is famous.
With a head constantly brimming with new ideas and concepts Berni's unique style reflects her own colourful imagination. Using beautiful handmade papers Berni produces images blossoming with delicate hues and soft textures whilst still portraying wonderful three dimensional depth and vitality.
Berni Parker Designs remains a friendly, family run business with the sole aim of continuing to provide wonderful card and gift designs for our customers.
Combining her own unique handmade style, delicately colourful designs and quirky sense of the sublime Berni Parker produces a range of enchanting and engaging products. The popularity and universal appeal of Berni's creations is illustrated by the fact that they have been the best selling designs for 7 years in a row for the National Trust, as well as being exported to an amazing 16 countries worldwide, including Japan.
Berni's selection of greeting cards, prints, gift-wrap, stationary and giftware are fully licensed and readily available through over 700 independent outlets, including Junction 18 and Portmeiron for Royal Worcester china
