Hello, I’m Bex; a British illustrator and surface pattern designer living on Vancouver Island in Canada with my two teenage boys and one daft dog. I’m particularly drawn to creating florals, cute animal characters and lettering. My designs are whimsical and painterly in style with fresh color palettes that appeal to both adults and children alike. With a degree in Creative Arts and training in Interior Design, I love to explore new art styles, techniques, and have recently started designing for the home decor market.
I was so thrilled to be recently chosen by Windham Fabrics, from nearly 700 submissions to the Uppercase Surface Pattern Design Guide, to design a new fabric collection for them. I am truly honored to join their team of talented designers and, as a hopeless sewer myself, I look forward to learning more about the quilting world in general.
If you are an art director or manufacturer who wishes to license or purchase any of my designs, or commission something new, please contact my agent Brenda Manley at www.brendamanleydesigns.com. I have licensed and sold designs in the stationery, gift and bolt fabric markets. I am always open to new challenges and I love to work with clients on projects if you’re after something specific.
