Hello I’m Sally Pickles a Surface Pattern Designer based in Warwickshire, UK.
I create unique, organic inspired textile designs that evoke an ethereal quality.
I love the unpredictability of Art & Design and how a single line or colour can transform a design. I love drawing, playing with paint, ink or anything to create a different, unexpected mark. I discovered printing with silk screen whilst a student and fell in love with the process immediately, seeing my drawn marks on fabric was a ‘wow’ moment and I have been hooked ever since. After 8 years in the classroom teaching Art I have returned to creating my own work, pursuing my one true passion surface pattern design.
My style can be described as creating detailed hand drawn marks, inky lines combined with layers of soft colours. I am passionate about colour and pattern and want to create beautiful designs that will transform a home interior into a calming, peaceful space.
