Marie Murphy is an illustrator and a surface pattern designer based in Brighton in the South East of England. With over 16 years experience in the creative industry from creating graphics for Fatboy Slim's live shows to bespoke creative events for PWC, Pret a Manger and many others. She is now focusing on her first love – surface pattern design and home decor.
Designs usually begin in a sketchbook with a line drawings or with the use of bold blocks of colour. Those ideas and sketches are then translate into digital patterns and prints. With a degree in embroidered textiles and a love of architecture and design, Marie is influenced by a huge range of artists, designers and her environment.
Marie is passionate about using the best quality materials for her luxury British products. Where possible materials are sourced in the UK and all products are made by highly skilled craft people in the UK. All digitally printed fabric is printed in the UK using up to date print technology. The use of modern technology now minimises the amount of chemical waste produced by the printing process. Sheepskins used are all British and are tanned by the last tannery in the UK that still employs traditional processing techniques. Embroidery is done by small scale producers at two locations in the UK depending on the job. Packaging is responsibly sourced and cornstarch cellos sleeves are used for all artwork where possible.
Marie is available for commissions or collaborations, please contact us with any queries you may have.
