My name is Lizzie and I am an award-winning illustrator and surface pattern designer based in North London. I graduated from Staffordshire University in 2005 with a BA (Hons) in surface pattern. Since then, I have worked with a number of high-street brands creating beautiful patterns for all kinds of products. Previous clients include Designer’s Guild, Monsoon Accessorize Ltd, Marks & Spencer, John Lewis and Paperchase.
I am currently a senior designer at Debenhams where I get to work with a great bunch of people, designing surface pattern and illustrations for the homeware department - think bedlinen to light shades, cushions to dinnerware!
I have also started to write, design and illustrate my own books. My first book – ‘Collage Carnival – a book to colour, cut and paste your way to creative heaven’ is out now, published by Batsford. You will find it for sale in any Foyles, Waterstones, Anthropologie UK and the Tate Museum bookshops! Collage Carnival encourages you to embrace your creativity and break free from the worries of day-to-day life. Have a digital detox and let go of your artistic inhibitions with the help of this book. There are no limits! Break the rules! Prepare to get creative and have a lot of fun.
Macmillan have also bought the rights to publishing the book in America. Check out my stockists page for more details.
Please get in touch if you are interested in working with me or would like to discuss any other design opportunities. I love ideas.
I am also a founding member of The Exhibition Collective which is a community artist platform. It brings artists from all backgrounds together and curates exhibitions once a year. In need of a creative outlet?
