About Happy Planet

“When you show animals and nature love and respect, you will be rewarded by a sensory explosion of love and happiness!”

So says artist Kat Irvine, whose love for animals, plants, and flowers is the inspiration for this design. Kat is happiest when surrounded by wildlife, and she has included a blackbird in amongst the foliage as it holds special meaning for her.

Kat’s art usually involves lively, quirky characters and plants and she enjoys weaving a story into her designs. She wants to evoke joyful emotions through her work and to encourages everyone to flock together in support of a ‘Happy Planet’.
