I'm Sophie, the founder of Déercor®- Designer, Artist and deer enthusiast.
I was introduced to deer in 2016 through my degree in Animal Science. They captivated me and inspired me, I've wanted to work with them ever since.
During my gap year I travelled around the UK to work alongside experts in the UK deer industry; with farmed, park and wild deer. While creating and setting up Déercor. I currently work with wild deer and park deer across the world and aspire to own a deer park, to help conserve endangered species through breeding programs, but ultimately so I can set up a social enterprise, helping others. I'm always learning and love to share my passion for deer with others through my videos, home decor and artwork.
It's important to me to film and study behaviour in the field so I can learn about different features and charming characteristics to bring through the designs.
I use the small details in designs - such as correct antlers, coat colour or including scientific names and deer habitats to share subtle education. My goal is the help the public by introducing all the wonderful variations and features of deer we have around the world.
EVERYTHING IS DESIGNED & MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN
It all begins in my Norfolk studio where I begin planning the next individual products or Limited Edition collection. I find inspiration is all around me in nature and I include these little details I find out about deer in my designs. Once I am happy with the patterns and artwork, I collaborate with other British businesses with outstanding craftsmanship to create the very best products that are both beautiful and practical for your home.
All sales made with Déercor are funding my international study around the globe, with the ambition of researching as many different deer species as I can. to look closely at their behaviour, health and habitats etc. So far I have travelled to:
I have a long list of work experience destinations waiting for me and many deer species to work with, once COVID allows travel again.
If you are interested in sponsoring me or finding more about investment opportunities for the social enterprise, please contact me, I would be very happy to answer any questions.
