Hello! My name is Fay and I'm surface pattern designer and illustrator based in Oxfordshire, UK.

I live with my husband and our two teenage sons, who are very used to me disappearing down to my garden studio,"just for half an hour"only for me to return three hours later!

I work from my garden studio, surrounded by fields, with my two furry studio assistants, Ewok and Yogi!

I've enjoyed over twenty years experience working as a textile designer, including nine years at Designers Guild and three years at Diane Harrison Designs, producing numerous collections for interiors.

I love using paints, inks and pens, alongside digital techniques to create designs and illustrations for children, and adults to enjoy.

When I'm not designing, or roaming the Thames Path with the dogs, I enjoy running crafts at our local church Toddler Group or doing power walking classes at Wittenham Clumps!
