About Eleanor Johnson:

Eleanor is mainly inspired by nature and her surroundings, you can often find her at the local garden centre or out and about sourcing flowers and foliage to draw from. Eleanor begins the design process by hand drawing motifs in watercolour and ink, she then turns these into patterns using Photoshop. She finds this digital technique very satisfying as she can portray an illustrative style within her work and she loves to see her original drawings come to life through pattern. In her latest project, Eleanor has began to draw jungle animals combined with botanical drawings which she is developing into exciting, colourful, quirky prints. 


Favourite textile technique: Digital print.


Inspirational DesignersI find inspiration with many artists and designers, and few of my favourites include Amber Davenport, Clare Therese and Sarah Simon.

Dream job: Something where I would be able to draw all day! Working for a high-end wallpaper/printed textiles company in London is my aim for the future.
