Hello! I'm Harriet a textile print designer, illustrator & graphic designer based in Berkshire, UK.
I studied Textile Design at The University of Leeds and completed my Masters in Textile Innovation and Branding, leading me to work in fashion as a print and graphic designer. Working with ready-to-wear brands, high street retailers and suppliers for the past 7 years, with experience in creating artwork for womenswear, childrenswear and for home & stationery products. As well designing graphics and illustrations for use within businesses marketing and social media.
Print designs and illustrations are inspired by my surroundings, I'm lucky enough to be located between the great British countryside and the hustle and bustle of the city. With further inspiration coming from travels further afield. You'll often find me out and about with camera and sketchbook in hand! Naturally, I'm drawn to bright colours, textures and slightly abstracted styles. With a love for English country home textiles, vintage fashion, hand painted prints and all things floral!
I have recently launched my freelance business, working on a wide variety of creative projects from textile print collections & graphics for fashion and home brands, to commissioned digital illustrations and custom graphics for client projects and bespoke customer orders.
