Feature Friday - JLW Illustration

Today I am showcasing the gorgeous work of my lovely twitter friend JLW Illustration.

Jennie-Louise Whitham is the face behind JLW Illustration.
Jennie is a graduate of LCAD where she studied Textiles & Surface Design.
This degree and completion of 'The Art and Business of Surface Pattern' e-course has developed Jennie into a brilliant designer.

Below are a few snippets from her fantastic portfolio of work...

I am drawn to Jen's work through her use of bold colour; her palettes are always fresh and easy on the eye. 
I also love how she manages to combine florals with geometrics so effortlessly and effectively!

Jennie pushes the boundaries of surface pattern with her design work; continually coming up with something new and quirky.
Her work is always on-trend and eye-catching! 

Her dedication to her design work and love for all things surface pattern is definitely infectious and I feel very inspired whenever I see her work.
