The arrival of a niece and nephew reawakened Elissia’s interest in childhood and in family life.  She really enjoys trips to the seaside and grand days out.

These have become the focus of her design work and provide a great opportunity to bring together the things that she loves e.g. line, pattern and colour.

Elissia often works from photographs that she has taken on days out. She can then produce line drawings and sewing-machine drawings, to which she then adds pattern and colour elements using a combination of collage and Photoshop. These images are then developed for homewares, fabrics and gifts.

Her current range consists of ceramic ware, framed art work, interior textiles such as cushions, aprons and tea-towels, some of these in child-friendly sizes.
