I created Popsiebelle unintentionally. She just grew from a love of drawing, stories and conversations with my daughter Sophie who at the time was 3. It gave us an opportunity to connect and engage with one-another. This has given us the foundation of conversations we still have and will have, as she grows older.
Popsiebelle is my imagination in full colour. My daughter, Sophie, is the inspiration for Popsiebelle. I could not wait to hear her voice; I knew all the little bits were there and in the right places, however, I wondered how she would sound and what would she say?
Finally I heard her voice - Popsiebelle was created in the many hours and years of drawings, stories, mispronounced words and wonderful adventures with my daughter. This has given us the foundation of conversations we still have and will have, as she grows older.
We were living in Canada and she used to call a Popsicle a “poxibelle” and so with a slight adjustment, the name Popsiebelle was born.
Popsiebelle is a creative play, brand for little imaginations. Our products collectively create a giant colorful storybook filled with illustrated characters that need their stories told, adventures’ to be had and imaginations to inspire.
Where does my inspiration come form for each character?
