The Story of



We use our quirks to create unique art!

Welcome to Scaredy Bones a woman-run business, for brightly coloured, playful, handmade illustrated gifts. First of all allow me to introduce myself, my name is Gina Shord, a chick from Cornwall with brightly coloured hair who now finds herself living in London. I have worked freelance as an Illustrator since 2015 after studying a Degree in Illustration at Falmouth University where I fell in love with Illustration.  


Ever since I was a teenager I've had a massive interest in old school tattoo art and alternative subjects which is where I get a lot of my inspiration from for my illustrations. I also find mental health and self-care extremely important which is why I include these topics within my work. 


I had been sitting on the idea of Scaredy Bones for quite some time when in 2018 I took the plunge. I wanted a name which was odd but lovable. Related to me, embraced my quirks and insecurities. Which lead me to Scaredy Bones.


My goal is to embrace the strange, bring a smile to peoples faces with quirky illustrated gifts and to bring more colour into this world. I hope you enjoy the products as much as I enjoyed making them.
