I’m Gill Ferguson a surface pattern designer working from my studio in the beautiful coastal village of Silverdale. After working in the textile industry as a designer/colourist for 15 years, I now create print designs inspired by the loveliness in the surrounding countryside, vintage finds & trend research.
Mainly working in watercolours & inks my style is fluid & relaxed. I enjoy playing with the tension between the natural flow & mix of the paint & more definite distinct marks, whilst remaining open to happy accidents. I love working with colour, creating harmonious colourways with a zingy highlight.
Aswell as designing patterns I also run textile workshops for adults & children in a variety of settings, including schools, adult education & small groups in my studio.
