I've been a surface designer, pattern-maker and illustrator for almost thirty years, since graduating with a Fashion/Textiles degree from Brighton University in 1994. Over that time, I've gained a great deal of experience in various aspects of the textile design industry. I love everything about colour, trend, art and design, especially creating cute characters, patterns and placement designs for all kinds of products.
Living on the South Coast of the UK, as well as being a designer, I'm also a mum with a penchant for painting abstract art, drinking peppermint tea, listening to loud, experimental music, pottering in the garden, crocheting, binge-eating fudge and watching too many music documentaries, not necessarily in that order. If you'd like to see my art, then please go to www.michelepayneart.com.
Over my career I've been lucky enough to collaborate with a number of exciting brands, some of which include :
Vital Baby, Lilly + Sid, Lakeland, SmileyWorld, Pigeon Organics, Turtledove, Hibou Home, Mothercare, Lucy + Yak, Tesco, Mamas + Papas and John Lewis
