Welcome

Magpie & Jay is a fine and decorative arts business based in Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK. Here you will find designs that combine naturalistic forms in geometric arrangements, taking inspiration from William Morris and illustrators of the early 20th century, with great delicacy of colour and form. You will also find our latest selection of fine art.

What’s on this site

Our shop shows our ranges of greetings cards featuring our distinctive designs. More products are planned for the future. Why not let us know what you would like?

Our commissions section explains what type of commissions we can undertake for you – perhaps a portrait in the style of an Old Master, or a picture of your home in watercolour and gouache.

Our gallery section shows paintings we currently have for sale. Guide prices are given but offers are also considered.

Our blog provides updates about our business, including latest inspirations and what we are doing to make our greetings cards as ethical as possible.

We hope you find something of interest here. We also have a sister site, Stuchbury Editions, where you can view our self-illustrated publications and find out about our editorial services.
