Portrait by Ellouise Gray


Hi there,

I'm Zoë, a graduate of BA (Hons) Textile Design, Falmouth University. I specialise in textile print, but also create designs for general surfaces and needlepoint.

My love of design and colour is something that I've always been excited by, even as a child, drawing patterns and scrapbooking constantly. I'm a collector of patterned clothing too, including my favourite floral jumpsuit! 

Studying a textile degree at university has allowed me to find my identity as a designer, and develop my quirky illustrative style. I like to think my designs always have conceptual meaning and careful technical thought, with a colourful and celebratory aesthetic. I take inspiration from interesting/unusual details in day-to-day life, and extract the colours, shapes and textures of these to create unorthodox print designs.

My internships have been extremely valuable to my understanding of the textile industry, and have improved my screen-printing skills, and confirmed my passion in my chosen career.

Thank you for taking the time to look through my website. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any enquiries!
