I love to create designs and illustrations for books, stationary/greeting cards/gift wrapping sector, home-ware, interiors and soft furnishings, fashion, product design and anything else I have missed!
I am a Free-lance Surface Pattern designer, Illustrator and Artist who welcomes commissions and licence work.Elaine Collins Designs was created in 2015 providing unique fresh designs to the design/art Industry. I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Art & Design, and I am also a qualified Interior Designer and an accredited Art Therapist.
It doesn't matter where I am, design concepts just pop into my head as I walk along the street, take a country path on a lazy hazy afternoon in any season, or visit a place in the U.K. or abroad, life is my design world, I find inspiration everywhere! and I will get my sketchbook to initially place it down on paper or take a photo to create my first illustrations and the beginnings of my journey to creating a new design or illustration starts, in my home studio I enhance it with finer drawings, paint, collage, print, graphic pens, charcoal, ink or digital software and see the design emerge before my eyes. My designing is organic in it's journey, a focal point/idea/object 'speaks' to me in how it wants to be portrayed as a pattern/illustration or image within the briefs expectations.
Recently I have also appeared in 'MOYO' Design Magazine (Sept/Oct 2016) and was the winner of the ABSPD 'Eco-Active' Category Winner in the Summer of 2015.
I hope you enjoy cooking as well as enjoy my illustrated recipes, I would love to hear your feedback...did you see what I did there ? :0) FEED...back! enjoy!
