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.

New Designers 2011

I recently took a trip down to London to visit Chelsea Harbour Design Centre and The Natural History Museum to collect visual and market research for my Minor Project in September.
Visiting these places is very exciting for me; I love feeling inspired and getting that buzz to draw and design when I see
the beautiful designs in all of the Interior showrooms.
I also visited New Designers which was the most inspirational of all the places I went to in London. The work was to such a high
standard; it was great to see the quality which I need to achieve during my final year to work towards a chance to exhibit myself next year!
One graduate's work that really stood out to me was Louise Tiler from Leeds College of Art and Design. She used a similar theme to the one I am working with for my Minor project so it will be great to use an inspiration. Her drawing style is flawless, creating the most beautiful prints
for Interiors...
