Floral Friday: Jennie Louise Whitham - J.L.W Illustrations

This weeks Floral Friday is Jennie Louise Whitham aka J.L.W Illustrations. Her florals are incredibly sweet, cute and fun!

I love her choice of colour; mixing bright, eccentric colours with calm, pale backgrounds. The thing I love most about Jennie's floral designs is how lively they are and how mood lifting they are.

Here, Jennie speaks about her life as a designer and her hopes and aspirations for the future:

"I am a graduate of Leeds art College, I studied Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design. I have 3 children and a lovely Husband. I graduated in 2010 and have spent the last 2 years building on my portfolio, entering design competitions, and most recently I enrolled on 'The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design' course, run by Rachael Taylor and Beth Nicholls. It is an online course and I have completed module 1 and 2 so far. Module 3 begins next week. 

I am Geometric/floral obsessed and often (always) combine the two, my designs are usually of a vibrant colour palette and I absolutely love it. I tend to find the colours before I create the designs. I dont think I could ever work in monochrome, its almost against my nature :-) 

I would love to be represented freelance by a design company, ideally specialising in paper products, although I have been told by many that my designs are versatile and would work along a variety of mediums. I'm not adverse to taking on an in-house position if local to West Yorkshire as that is my future goal. 

I have also been selected to have 2 designs published in a new book due for release January, called Patternbase. That's my greatest design achievement so far."
