Doodler, dreamer and mama to one wonderful boy and two cheeky cats.
Once upon a time there was a young girl called Toria who lovingly doodled characters in cards and as gifts for family and friends. She realised that her doodles made people smile and she liked that very much indeed.
After a career in TV Production and the crazy world of motherhood, Toria realised she missed doodling (and especially making people smile) so she picked up her pencil once more.
She began with a parenting blog called ‘Teacup Toria’ where she shared heart-felt posts about life as a single mum and funny poems illustrated with her doodle sketches, which often appeared on Britmums Poetry and Prose round-ups.
She was very happy to discover that people rather liked her funny little drawings, so in February 2017 she launched ‘Teacup Doodles’ with a clear mission; to create affordable, bespoke family artwork made with love, to make you smile!
Along the way, something wonderful happened to Toria. She realised that she’d found her way back to doing something that she loved. Being creative and making people happy through her artwork made her happy too!
Every doodle is created and illustrated by Toria from her Victorian terrace ‘Teacup House’ in Manchester. When Toria isn’t doodling, she can mostly be found enjoying a cup of tea and large slice of cake.
