Surface Pattern Design

I am quite new to surface pattern design but I am completely hooked. I’ve been busy learning as much as I can and having fun with my illustrations; watching them turn into repeating patterns. My dream is to work with kid’s clothes designers and makers to create colourful, gender neutral, FUN kids clothes, but I think some of my patterns would also work well as cushion covers, lampshades and curtains.

Some of my designs are available on Spoonflower, have a look here:

If you’re interested in any of my surface pattern designs drop me a note at

Buckets and Spades: this design was inspired over the heatwave and there is so much I love about it. From the colour palette to the blocky, simple shapes, to the wiggly breton stripes in the background. This is evocative of childhood seaside holidays all over.
Autumn woods: a cute autumnal pattern with pops of orange from Mr Fox. Perfect for baby leggings, baby-grows and raincoats; I can also imagine the fox and badger working well as larger motifs on sweatshirts
Woods and Hills: this makes a beautiful baby swaddle muslin, but also how great would it look as nursery wallpaper? It’s light and delicate, and I am just in love with this colour palette. A great gender neutral design.
Pure 90s Collection: this a wee part of a work in progress; my nostalgia and colour filled 90s pattern collection. Currently available on greeting cards and wrapping paper through my online shop, I’m planning on adding more to this collection, and am hoping to develop it into a range of baby products for us millennial, saved by the bell loving parents.
Shrimps – my obsession with prawns (or shrimps, call them what you will) is long documented so when I started dabbling in surface pattern design there HAD to be a prawn pattern. I’d like to see this on muslin cloths for babies, maybe a sleepsuit and I’d quite like a shirt made from this!
