Hi I am Lisa, ever since I was a little girl I loved to draw, I would spend hours drawing characters and enjoyed spending time adding lots of detail to my drawings. These wonderful childhood memories of making up characters for stories inspired me to study Illustration at college and after numerous evening classes I decided I was ready for a career in art. This website is a showcase of the variety of my work. As well as providing art prints and surface patterns I also teach hand embroidery workshops around Scotland and online. I love to meet people and share my love of art and embroidery. Thanks for stopping by.



Drawing and surface pattern design



I keep a sketchbook and add to it daily. My inspiration comes from nature mostly. Birds, animals and flowers always inspire me. I enjoy learning new techniques and love to add texture and line work to my art.
Together with my love of drawing and sketchbooks filled with ideas I have a wealth of options for creating surface patterns based on these initial sketches. I scan my hand drawings into Photoshop and Illustrator and start to create repeating patterns for stationery, textiles and home decor. I am also interested about the digital world and am currently working on a collection of digital stickers to be used by the digital planning community. I am really excited about this current project.



 Do you love texture, threads and enjoy creating unique pieces of embroidery, why not come along to one of my workshops? I hold various sewing related workshops across central Scotland as well as online via Skillshare. 

 Check out my latest workshop dates listed in my shop. If you have any questions just drop me an email.
