Tracy Cottingham

Born and Bred in London, I graduated from Middlesex University with a B.A. (Hons) degree in Printed Textile Design.

Whilst selling designs for fashion and furnishing fabrics both in the UK and internationally, I received my first commission to design a range of greeting Cards. This led me into the world of illustration and I began to design for cards, packaging ,paper products and children’s books. Colour and pattern are main influences in my work.

I particularly enjoy designing for children and take my inspiration from all things bright, beautiful and quirky.

I also love to browse through vintage children’s books. I enjoy sunny days, rummaging through Car boot fairs and I have a weakness for wine gums (especially the red ones).I live in London with my lovely husband and two sons.
