Suzanne has been working as an illustrator and surface pattern designer since graduating from Loughborough University in 2004 with a BA in Printed Textile Design. Suzanne began working as a print designer for nightwear, swimwear and lingerie for a high street brand but since going freelance has designed and sold artwork globally for fashion, home and kids products including several commissions for Harrods and vintage style fashion brand Lindy Bop.
Suzanne loves producing complex vector surface designs with hand drawn motifs as well as mixed media artwork combining watercolour elements with line art. Specializing in highly detailed decorative designs and retro inspired conversational prints inspired by nature, vintage collections and eclectic treasures Suzanne’s work has a quirky narrative quality and a magical sense of nostalgia. Suzanne loves painting florals as well as drawing cute fun designs.
Usually found working in her home studio in Leicestershire she also enjoys cooking healthy treats and baking, doing a spot of hand sewing and nice long walks in the local countryside. Suzanne also loves cats and reading and feels there is nothing like the escapism of a great book! Also quite at home having a good rummage in a vintage store or used bookshop.
