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.

Working progress

Below are a few images of my drawing sheets so far.

I have really embraced the detailed, figurative drawing style that I have developed over the past few years, to achieve highly informative observational drawings. This, combined with the geometric line and shape that I have introduced in areas is producing some really interesting patterns and motifs for me to experiment with during the design development stages.
The drawings that I have kept quite literal will be developed in different ways when I start to design to bring in the abstract side of my theme, perhaps by cutting them up and putting them back together or layering them up to create distorted imagery.

I am really happy with how these have turned out and I am excited to be starting design development soon, to play around with all the ideas floating around in my head!
What do you think?
