About Me

My photo
Delicate designs with an illustrative edge - highly detailed surface pattern and illustration, inspired by life and created with love. Sarah Fleming is a graduate of Cleveland College of Art & Design, where she studied Textiles and Surface Design, specialising in design for the home furnishings and greetings market. Inspired by the detail and beautiful patterns found in nature and her surroundings, Sarah is motivated to achieve beautiful, highly informative observational drawings. She showed an interest in Art from a very early age and has developed a great passion for Textiles and Surface Design. This huge passion spurs her on to work extremely hard, full of enthusiasm to create new and exciting design ideas. Sarah has developed a detailed, tight drawing style which helps her to achieve her beautiful observational drawings. However, she is also able to work in a very sketchy, illustrative style too - showing her as a very versatile designer, capable of adapting where relevant to confidently produce designs for both the commercial and more niche markets.

Year 2 - Furnishing Fabrics

So, second year has started and I'm busier than ever! First project of the year is for the Bradford Textile Society competition designing for furnishing fabrics. Very stressful but exciting too!
My chosen theme is nature and everything organic, looking at a variety of things from shells to flowers, mushrooms to fish and the textures and patterns created by nature.
I have posted some images of my initial drawing sheets below and will post again with design development soon!...
