Hello, my name is Ruth, I’m an illustrator and surface pattern designer, I love to create bold, colourful, fun designs inspired by ordinary everyday objects and a love of printmaking and drawing. I use a mixture of traditional linocutting and digital techniques, hand carving individual elements which brings a playful texture and energy to each piece.
I have worked in the print design industry since graduating from Manchester Metropolitan University with an MA in printed textiles in 1996, first in New York and then London for a variety of different studios. I now work from my studio in the beautiful Stroud valleys designing for a variety of markets including kids, food illustration, maps, home decor and stationery. I also design and produce a small range of prints and gifts which I sell in my Etsy shop
