Megan is a UK based Surface Pattern Designer and illustrator.


Her unique, stylised patterns are inspired from her attraction to the organic shapes of nature and from her love of drawing.

She loves to explore historical patterns and paraphernalia for inspiration

particularly taking reference from the Arts and Crafts movement, Art Nouveau and the Wiener Werkstatte period.


Megan studied BA Honours Surface Pattern at Staffordshire university and graduated in the year 2000.

Since then, with almost 20 years worth of experience working as an in-house greetings card designer both for Hallmark Cards and Uk Greetings, where Megan designed for the likes of Marks and Spencer, Sainsburys and Asda, she is now working on a freelance basis exploring new applications to apply her patterns and illustrations to.

Megan is open to free-lance, licensing and project collaborations.


February 2020 saw the launch of Megan's debut fabric collection

with American brand Cotton and Steel where her patterns

have become popular within the international home sewing community.
