I create geometric designs for homeware products

Welcome to Green Icing Studios, created with the aim of combining the timeless and compelling beauty of geometric designs with high quality products.

My love of geometric patterns started when I was a child. My mum would come home with colouring books devoted to complex designs. From memory, these were mostly, if not all, traditional Islamic geometric patterns. I would spend hours colouring them in. I just loved the way the patterns could be changed, depending on how you coloured them, on which individual shapes, or groups of shapes, you chose to emphasise. I loved how the could be bold and graphic, or pretty and delicately intricate, but always dazzling.

Life moved on, I grew up and pretty much forgot about this childhood passion, although I was always drawn to art that triggered my love of form and colour. It certainly never occurred to me that I would one day turn this love into work.

Then, in 2017 I stumbled on Eric Broug’s fantastic website - specialising in the study, and celebration, of traditional Islamic geometric designs. I promptly bought his books and started learning how to create these patterns for myself, using a pencil, compass and ruler - following in the footsteps of countless craftsmen over many centuries. I now create the majority of my designs on computer, largely because it’s the easiest way to share accurate and detailed designs with manufacturers, but the joy of creating them is the same, and the possibilities are seemingly endless.

I’ve recently found a way to combine my love of geometric patterns with my love of printmaking. I’ve done relief print-making (linocuts) for years but finally got around to learning how to do screen-printing on fabric at the beginning of 2020. Lock down put a temporary halt to practising this further, so I experimented with block-printing (using linocuts) on fabric instead. You get a softer, more ‘vintage’ look with block prints, which works well with some patterns – others ‘need’ the cleaner lines and solid blocks of colour you get from screen-printing. I hope to be exploring both methods further over the coming months and will be posting finished products for sale as and when I’ve completed them.

Planned hand-printed products for the near future include: linen tea towels linen or cotton table runners and cushion covers and lampshades. if you’re interested in finding out more about any of my products or designs, please message me.

I hope you enjoy your visit to my site.
