Hi there! I'm Georgia Wagner, the creator of Squiggles & Dot, founded in 2019.
The short story is that this site came to life after I designed and handcrafted all the elements for our wedding in 2019. From the wedding stationary, to table names and favours and many more beautiful shabby chic touches.
The longer story... I initially trained as a clinical psychologist but having suffered a life changing accident at work I found that I needed to adjust accordingly. You cannot predict the day you're life is going to change forever or how it will turn out. I was diagnosed with a rare chronic pain condition which has been incredibly difficult to come to terms with - having a disability completely changed my identity and has been an emotional roller-coaster. However, what I have found is that my passion for art and crafts is the best therapy for coping.
I have always been passionate about art and when I was 18, I was lucky enough to spend a blissful year at art school in Florence, Italy. Over these past few years I slowly returned to life drawing and before I knew it our home (much to my husband's dismay) had become an art studio. Now I spend more time in the studio than anywhere else. Following our wedding, making gifts for friends and family snowballed with a little time and much more crafting to become Squiggles & Dot!
I specialise in a range of handcrafted products including upcycled vintage items, as well as bespoke and uniquely personalised gifts and cards. Contact me to find out more.
