Ellie works as a freelance surface pattern and textile designer, and loves creating illustrations. Drawing is the foundations of her work, which she uses to create playful, illustrative and fun images that appeal to children and adults alike.She has a real passion for pattern, drawing and bright colours.

She collects everything, from papers to fabrics, ceramics to bottle lids, and loves to use all these things to influence and inspire the designs that she creates.  She loves to take inspiration from vintage children's picture books, old ceramics, and all the things she finds in charity shops and car boots. She loves screenprinting and lino printing.
