Title - Abstract forms.
I am a surface pattern designer/illustrator from Birmingham, UK. All of my designs start their life by hand - I love using anything I can find to make marks and use a range of methods from printmaking, collage, painting and drawing. Art work is then taken into Photoshop and played with until just so....
Having a long career as an art and design lecturer, I take influences from a wide range of sources from fine art to textile design and most disciplines in-between. I love bold colours, marks and motifs and there is nothing more satisfying than seeing my patterns on products in shops. I have been working for 4 years on a freelance basis on packaging design with Lush handmade Cosmetics and have collaborated with a range of other companies, such as Anthropologie and 3M.
