About The Doodle Dame

I have always wanted to learn graphic design and digital drawing. About 5 years ago I bought my first graphics tablet - a little Wacom Intuos. My first artworks weren't all that great, but a friend who owned a fabric printing shop saw the potential. She had more faith in me than I did and I will forever be grateful for it.


I started with Inkscape and GIMP (both free) to design custom seamless patterns for fabric printing. Since then I have taught myself how to use Affinity Designer and Photo, Photoshop and Procreate (iPad only) and added logo design and realistics mockups to my portfolio. I even upgraded my little graphic tablet to a Huion Kamvas 12.

I am based in sunny South Africa so my local currency is Rand (ZAR). I have however made the website in USD to make it easier for my non-South African customers to use PayPal. I also offer Yoco as a payment option (via "manual payment") - it is a secure credit card payment portal and proudly South African. If possible please enquire about this option as payment method as I love supporting local as much as possible. Currency will reflect as Rand on the link, however all major cards are accepted.

I am still learning (do we ever really stop?) and would love to read your feedback or custom requests. You can drop me a message on Facebook or email me at

Much love,
