DESIGNER - gemma lofthouse

Gemma Lofthouse is a UK based Freelance surface pattern, textile & tile designer. Gemma has over 8yrs experience in the creative industries, designing for a wide range of products. From an early age she was inspired by her surroundings, particularly nature and botanicals. At 13, Gemma was fortunate to travel to India with her Grandfather to meet her Great Gran. Observing and absorbing the vibrancy of the country, the textiles and the architecture, this sparked her passion for travel. It was at this time, colour, pattern and texture became an integral part of her thinking. Driven by her love of the handmade, Gemma creates artwork through drawings, paintings, and mixed media for Screen Printing and Digital/CAD techniques. Freelance work includes designing prints and surface patterns, and researching trends to produce trend-boards and trend led write-ups/trend edits, for clients large and small, from the Homewares and Apparel industries, as well as working with Licensed brands for apparel and accessories.
And as an extra for our Friday Eye Candy feature I thought I'd share some of the fabulous designs Gemma Lofthouse has created for Anthropologie.....
