World Heart Day is an annual event taking place on 29 September every year. Each year’s celebrations have a different theme, reflecting key issues and topics relating to heart health.  World Heart Day was founded in 2000 to inform people around the globe that heart disease and stroke are the world’s leading causes of death, claiming 17.3 million lives each year.  For more information visit the World Heart Federation's website.

 My name is Lee Holland and I am a freelance illustrator who loves to design and draw cute characters. I've worked in many industries over the years including greeting cards, card making, cross stitch and books to name a few. I love nature and going for walks with my family which provides a lot of inspiration for my work. I recently opened an etsy shop to sell my designs as Digi stamps for crafters to use in their crafting projects. I hope people enjoy using my images as much as I do drawing them :)
