Hello, and welcome. I'm Sarah, a freelance Surface pattern designer living in the Cotswolds, UK.
I enjoy creating my work by combining hand-drawn or painted with Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop. I really love working to a brief, and am adapt at designing to cost and/or manufacturing constraints.
Graduated 2002 from Winchester School of Art. Printed textiles (1st). Worked in London as a homeware designer for 7 years at BHS creating prints, seasonal themes and managerial work. I've freelanced for the past 6 years, working with companies such as L'Oreal, MADE.com, Royal Botanical Kew Gardens, Little White Co, Debenhams, George at Asda (homeware), BHS, Talking Tables to name a few.
I specialise in Homeware design. I create pattern for bedding, dinnerware/tabletop and kitchenware mainly, but I love all areas of Homeware. I create girls print and pattern while working for Lemon Ribbon design studio. Illustration work includes; book illustration, portraits, colouring pages, logos, invitations, Christmas illustrations. I also licence my work.
I take on smaller projects - these have ranged from wedding invites, engagement books, to bespoke christmas cards.
