Meet who is behind Deckled Edge!
The artist and sole hard-worker behind Deckled Edge Ltd is Janna Cossettini. Janna also juggles designing and running the biz alongside being a mother,. She is an avid horse rider who loves to keep fit and healthy to balance the hours sitting sketching, and the evenings enjoying a glass of vino or two. "I believe I have the best job in the world and I am so passionate about what I do".
Deckled Edge specialises in Equestrian and Country Living greeting cards, gift wrap and prints.
A growing art brand with a natural approach, and aim of bringing joy through pigment/paper/pen.
Pigment: vibrant watercolours, pencils and colour use, creating all of my art by hand, resulting in designs with a unique warmth.
Paper: quality thick tactile boards, a love and respect derived from studying traditional printmaking techniques and frequent use of ‘deckled edge’ papers at Uni.
Pen: to write those lovely cards, joining the special connection engaged when simply writing to others by hand.
How I came to this point:
A collaboration of life’s experiences gained within the art and design field.
- Artist, I have a Fine Arts degree
- Career as Art Director for the Condé Nast Family of magazines, plus retail catalogues for M&S and John Lewis Home, spanning well over ten years.
My dream for Deckled Edge is to build a reputation worldwide with innovative and fresh stylish designs for the equine and country gifting market. With boundless energy, creative focus and expertise which will allow me to refresh the brand and keep moving forward. Each range and concept is designed by hand using vibrant pigments, quality tactile boards, and a connection from consumer to receiver with the humble pen.
Deckled Edge is a limited company which trademarked in 2012, and began its first trade to customers early in 2015. All products are made here in the UK.
I hope you enjoy my designs as much as I have in creating them!
