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.

Third and Final year!

So I haven't posted for a while due to being massively busy with preparations for my final year at CCAD! - very scary, it's passing far too quickly!

I've been busy collecting research and imagery for my Minor project, for which I will be designing a range of furnishing fabrics using florals, foliage, butterflies, birds and insects as my theme.
Inspired by my time at Kate Usher and some of the beautiful designs I saw at this years New Designers show, I am hoping to play around with Photoshop and develop some really well executed digital designs, a technique I am yet to experiment with during my degree.

My collection of initial drawings is steadily growing, photos of which I will post soon, along with the concept boards I put together - showing inspirations, market research and colour, to give you all an idea of what I am working on!
