a story about home

"My MAIN HOPE is TO HAVE IMAGINED art THAT WILL REMIND YOU OF JOYOUS MEMORIES FOR MANY YEARS"

by Hebridean artist

eilidh jamieson

Born on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Eilidh Jamieson is not just an artist, but a storyteller of memories.

Inspired by her travels and with the soul of the islands rooted deeply within her, she has carved a niche art business; EJayDesign.

MT ISA AUSTRALIA

2013

leaving the nest

Unsure of what to pursue in life, at 19 years old I took a gap year in Australia. I found myself working in the middle of the desert in a mining town called Mt Isa.

missing home

One day, I came across an online shop that could burn your country onto the cover of journals. I instantly fell in love.

The shipping price was more than the cost of the journal but it didn't matter. No one could put a price on home, and I needed this journal. I chose the Isle of Lewis and a heart on Stornoway. Every time I used it, I felt comforted that home would always be there.

growing up

I went on to study in Glasgow and work as a graphic designer back in the Hebrides until deciding to travel again.

an unexpected business

I opened an Etsy shop without much thought. To my surprise, sales started to grow. 

Unfortunate and unrelated events forced me to leave my bar job, while Christmas sales started to pour in. Could selling my art become my full time job?

covid won't stop me

When Covid-19 hit, I was sure my dream of full time work would not be possible. How wrong I was!

People had more time to shop online, and I was busier than ever.

2021

ejaydesign is fully established

I invested in new products - mugs, stickers, tea towels and clothing. I reached out supplying shops. 

EJayDesign was all go. Nothing could stop me now!

This summer I held my first exhibition in the heart of Edinburgh, something I would never have imagined coming true and my biggest achievement. I hope it is the first of many.
