LeAnne Nowell

Diploma in Textile design – Durban Technical University South Africa. Graphic designer and illustrator at WFP and FAO – Rome, Italy. Fine artist.

My work begins on paper, usually as a study of a botanical subject drawn from life. I use watercolor which allows color to merge and create interesting tints, tones and textures.

I then scan, adapt and digitize the images before manipulating them to form a pattern. You may have noticed my portfolio covers a wide range of subjects. Mostly floral design but I do branch out sometimes. I think it’s important make things that align with one’s interests.

All my surface patterns are available for licence, and if you would like to commision a personalized design please contact me for details.
