My research practice of drawings and limited edition prints inspire surface patterns for application across fashion, interior and architectural contexts. With a modernist graphic aesthetic the quality of materials and design are of primary consideration. All products are made in England.

LATEST NEWS: Winter 2018/19

Having had a busy few months relocating to Norfolk and settling in to a new academic role I'm finding time to get back to the sketchbook and really enjoying drawing and making again. I'm embracing the landscapes as inspiration and developing some new work that I'm excited about but it's far too soon to share!

My 'Gardening with Mr Bawden' book was published by Design for Today last year and has been selling really well but sadly there was a large fire at the warehouse the stock was kept in and all was lost at New Year. There has been a fundraising campaign including an auction that I sold prints for to raise money to get stock reprinted - fingers crossed there will be more Bawden gardens available in the future. I'll let you know.

I've had my work in the 'Kitchen Garden' exhibition at Unit Twelve and am delighted by the feedback and sales – thanks to those who supported this and made purchases of my Plot to Plate products.

My bespoke service to provide the designs from my Construct and Threads collections in collaboration with Formica continues. Get in touch if you would like samples. The pattern designs are also available on window film via Window Film Company too.
