Meet the maker Lindsay Atkinson

littlebirdydesigns is the work of York based Designer/Maker Lindsay Atkinson. Lindsay studied for an Msc in Textile design specialising in surface pattern techniques. All products feature her original artwork, inspired from visits to her magical allotment and it's feathered visitors!

Garden birds are the theme central to each individual design. These are created through a combination of hand drawn imagery, drawing directly on the computer screen and manipulating patterns and shapes taken from digital photography. These elements are then combined, layered and positioned to create the finished piece.

Once the design process is complete they are ready to be applied via digital printing to a range of materials including various fabrics, card and ceramics, creating unique handmade products to decorate your home. Littlebirdy designs product range currently consists of special occasion cards, coasters, wall art, tealight holders, cushions and sketchbook covers.
