Clea studied Graphic Communication at Norwich University of the Arts, graduating in 2013. After leaving university, Clea discovered her love for print and pattern, and has been immersed in it ever since!
She currently works in London at an in-house giftware company. Clea would love to see her designs on home and giftware products, gift wrap, greetings cards, ceramics, invitations, packaging and more in the future!
In her free time, you can find Clea pinning surface pattern and graphic design on Pinterest or experimenting with a pattern or illustration. She is also a big fan of music, travel and culture. Clea has a graphic, slightly messy approach to designing and can't create a print without adding some sort of mark/texture, block colour shape or hand-drawn element to it, mixing traditional and digital methods. Messy and odd, but eye-catching combinations that work in harmony is something she tries to achieve. She has a big interest in watercolour, florals and delicate realistic illustration and this is another style to develop in the future.
