Nel's Pattern Collections

Nel designs textiles for the Freespirit Brand in America. All her collections are inspired either by her love of nature or her fine art library. Her designs have a painterly feel as they are hand drawn in pastel initially and then put into repeat digitally. 

'I aim when designing to bring in elements that hark back to fond childhood memories coupled with  elements from my paintings and colour palettes that make me smile. Designing patterns has now influenced my painting too , so the creative process seems to have gone full circle.'
