Who is Doodlebum?
Hi, I'm Elle and I am the driving force behind Doodlebum!
I've been a doodler all my life. My parents and friends used to call me Doodlebum and the nickname stuck like permanent marker.
I was studying Visual Communication Design at Massey University in Wellington, but after the rather unexpected arrival of my daughter in 2010 I put my studies on hold. Instead, I decided to pursue my main skill and hobby: drawing.
I originally started my Facebook page to share my artwork and crafts with friends and family. Now I am a proud NZ small business owner, creating all of my own coloring books, candles and melts, jewellery and artwork for the great demand of the general public.
It's been a long tough road and it will continue to be tough for a while, with a heck of a lot of hard work, sweat and tears. But it will be worth it!
And it is thanks to my wonderful friends, family and customers who support me and make my dream possible.
