about me photos.jpg

About me- I have over 25 years experience in the design business, a business that I absolutely love. Pattern and colour is what I’m most passionate about and I combine both to great effect in all my work. I have been told by clients that the work I create for them is often a best seller or it sells out totally! They are very happy with that and so am I.

I work from home which is in Milton Keynes UK, usually on my beloved Mac computer or I might be sketching or drawing in an office full of creative bit’s and pieces. Paints, fabrics, books and inspiration surround me, which is just brilliant and just the way I like it. When I’m not designing, I sing in a rock choir (it’s the best and we raise tons of money for various charities), I like spending time with my family and mates too. Oh, and I’m a BIG fan of musicals, glitter and pom-poms! And cake….

My design services

Bespoke services - I can create art especially for you. I have experience producing art and illustrations for many different product groups: greetings cards, stationery, home-ware, apparel, crafts, fabrics and embroidery to name few. I can also create theme/trend boards and can sketch up initial ideas or create a cohesive range using groups of my art. My love of colour means I can also develop colour palettes for you in accordance with your brief. If you’d like me to create some art for you or if you need some help developing a creative idea please get in touch and book a brainstorming session with me. Great design always translates into great sales!

Off the peg art - As an alternative to my bespoke services, you can buy or license art from my online portfolio. Please drop me an email and I'll send you a password so you can select what you need. Stepht168@gmail.com
