Little Darlings is the project of Swedish designer and illustrator Catherine Hedler. Catherine’s unique illustrations reflect her diverse background and experience as an artist, combining a passion for Japanese brushstrokes with Scandinavian minimalism. From her studio in Edinburgh, Catherine creates bespoke, beautifully detailed children's illustrations for your cherished little ones, each one as unique and special as they are. Every Little Darlings piece is lovingly hand made by the artist, bringing a touch of warmth and personality to your family home.​

Catherine lives a cuddly life with her own little darlings, her husband Ben and their German spitz Miso. Helping with Little Darlings Designs, Miso keeps Catherine’s feet warm while she illustrates as well as guarding her from the postman, while Ben lovingly makes her cheese on toast.


If you ever want to win the "who has the best present" competition - then you've come to the right place! I've stolen the show from not one but two baptisms with these amazing and beautiful paintings!

5/5 - Yay Little Darlings!


The painting I ordered for my girlfriend was beautiful, full of details and totally exceeded all expectations. We placed it on the wall next to the table where we eat, and every time we have a meal we can't help but admire it once again. Cannot recommend this enough!


I absolutely loved the cute painting of my baby. the detail was just amazing. professional service, beautiful and unique painting and timely delivery. can't wait to order my next painting ❤❤💚💖


A wonderfully unique and personal piece of art, looks just perfect in our boys bedroom. Thank you Catherine... order #2 due this Autumn


A beautiful unique illustration of my sweetheart which I will treasure forever. Thank you Catherine 😊♥️


I ordered our picture from Catherine and could not be more pleased. A beautifully created and unique piece just for us. Her style is so distinctive. I will be ordering many more- not just for the new little man, but also gifts for loved ones too. Thank you! X


Catherine is so talented, the piece she created for our little boy is unique and beautiful. We were so pleased when we received it. Captures the memory of our boy as a baby in a fun, colourful and very thoughtful way. We will be ordering another for our second baby due in Autumn and also as gifts for any future friends little ones.....Can not recommend enough! Amazing work Catherine, thank you x


Just received our drawing, for our business three year anniversary, absolutely over the moon, I sent a lot of specific things I wanted on the drawing and Catherine did not disappoint 🖤I love it, and the attention to detail is amazing. Will definitely be ordering again in the future. Thank you again xx


I almost never buy anything hand made. I was very happy to learn about Little Darlings and get the opportunity to get a beautiful hand made item as a token for reminiscing on my child's birth. I can tell that it was made with care from the artist.


We received our lovely print today and couldn’t be happier. We got sent a proof copy via email to ok everything and the postage was speedy. Would 100% recommend, it’s the perfect keepsake.
