Hannah Davies is an award winning Welsh based freelance designer and illustrator. She is a fine-detail Surface Pattern Design specialist who draws on her love of nature for inspiration, producing intricate work rich in texture and colour. Combining illustrations and pattern design, 'I use my imaginative and detailed hand-drawing as a starting point. I then develop this using my own vibrant watercolours and collage techniques creating quirky stories and inspiring patterns'. Hannah has worked with many design companies from all ends of the spectrum contributing in design, publishing and advertising. Using bold graphic shapes and blocks of flat colour combined with areas of intricate pattern I make simple, joyful, quirky designs. All the elements within my work are made by hand using acrylic paint, indian ink and simple print techniques. They are then cut and reassembled to create the final piece.
