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.

FMP update

I have had a busy few weeks so apologies for not updating for a while!
I turned 21 at the weekend and my brother also received an award for his degree so there were a lot of family celebrations. I also spent the day in London yesterday where I visited Liberty's, King's Road and Chelsea Harbour Design Centre as part of London Design Week. Chelsea Harbour was full to the brim with lovely new designs - I always enjoy looking in Harlequin, Zoffany Sanderson, Cole & Son and Romo, I aspire to the high quality of designs that they all produce!
The day was full of inspiration and I came home feeling eager to get on with my design work :)

I am well on my way with development and have produced a few final designs which I am really pleased with. These designs are beautiful screen printed and hand-rendered designs aimed more at the commercial market, some of which I hope to exhibit at Print Source in New York when I go in April. However, to show my versatility and challenge myself as a designer I am currently working on some more exciting, experimental designs! More info on that coming soon :)

See below three of the designs I am in the process of putting the final touches to...
