Primrose and Nelly

What we do: We are the studio pooches who mainly sleep and occationally bark furiously at visitors except for our favourite ones (Claire the postie who always brings us a treat and the kindly DHL man). We have been part of the team for four years now and feel that without us, life would be quite dull as the humans love to take a break every now and then and spend some quality time with us.

When not creating with the Honey tree team we like to: When not at the studios, we are at home with Lizbeth and Sebastian, we love walks but not so much when its raining as Primrose tend to get stuck in the mud due to her short legs & Whippets don't like rain!


Lizbeth Holstein - Creative Director/Queen Bee

What I do: With my watercolours and inks I design illustrations and artworks that help our customers create their perfect stationery collection. I love to see customers turn into stationery lovers, who send beautiful notes and cards to friends not because it’s their birthday, or because they feel they should, but just ‘because’. 

I’m passionate about the environment and the world around us, which is why you’ll only find the highest quality, sustainable materials in use at HoneyTree
