A little about me
Hi, I am a freelance surface pattern designer and illustrator from beautiful, leafy Cheshire, England. I'm very passionate about design, especially colour, pattern, experimenting with techniques and drawing. You'll find that I mainly work using mixed media.
I like to incorporate elements of nature, animals, people and everyday objects as standalone drawings and in patterns, within my work. My style is fun and painterly, and I tend to work traditionally, then develop/polishing my designs on the computer.
I love to constantly develop and play around with different media, techniques and colour combinations. I enjoy this stage of the design process as well as, later placing these into interesting compositions.
I also love to seek new sources of inspiration, from primary objects around me and secondary via magazines and on the internet.
Since graduating with a BA HONS degree in Surface Pattern, from The University of Huddersfield in 1998, I have worked as surface pattern designer in a design studio and freelancing. I have a Master degree in Textiles too, where I graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University, in 2010.
My pattern and illustration work has appeared on bedding, mugs, apparel, stationery, gift items and more…
