Genevieve Creigh Textile Artist
 

I am experienced Textile Designer with a passion for colour, fashion, new ideas and trends. In 1998 I won an award and travel bursary from the Royal Society of Arts for 'Cutting edge Print Design'. With my award I spent three months in Southern Africa studying the local Textiles and craftsmen-ship. Since graduating in 1998 from Loughborough College of Art and Design with a degree in Printed Textiles I have been working as a Textile designer for both woven and printed fabrics. My passion for drawing began at an early age and has developed into a design philosophy that combines my love of nature, art and travel. I am a versatile Designer with a strong lean towards feminine, trend-led womens wear but am just as happy designing colourful prints for childrenswear or T-shirt placements for menswear. I work in Photoshop and Illustrator as well as Corel Draw, Canvas and Publisher and always begin with hand-drawing my ideas as I feel this lends a special quality to the final outcome. As well as designing for other brands I print my own collection at a studio where I have produced cushion covers, wall-hangings, scarves and T-shirts. I am open to private commissions as well as freelance projects. A full range of my work can be found on this website.
