On Etsy since 2008

I love colour and patterns and want to share them with you!

Hello, I am Wendy Flynn,
Doris and Fred were my grandparents
I am an Artist specialising in surface pattern design and Illustration and book making!
I live in South West London with my wonderful Husband and young Son.
I have been creating art for as long as I can remember, it is all I ever wanted to do.
I have a degree in Graphic design From Bath (98)
I spent most of the 3 years in the darkroom and on the computer drawing with my mouse. (I was the only illustrator in my year to primarily use a computer, which seems really odd now!)
I love to draw with India ink, using a sharpened stick, or dip pen, this comes from a mark making class in the textiles portion of my foundation course, I still have the stick i used then (in 1994!)
I also love using Illustrator and photoshop to enhance my doodles and add colour and sometimes texture.
Sometimes my work starts from a drawing, sometimes it just sort of happens on the computer, it depends on the day!
I love to take photographs of everything around me, patterns and just things that interest me, from food to flowers to lines painted on the street! This used to involve carrying a bulky camera around all the time but thanks to my phone I can do this without too much sighing from those around me. These pictures inspire and sometimes become part of my work.
I am happiest near The sea or in my favourite park in the sunshine.
Things I love... hanging out with my family, taking photos, listening to 90s indie music, having a cheeky dance, baking cakes, watching tv box sets, finding cool vintage fabrics, good pizza, burritos the size of your head, chocolate, a meal with good friends.

5 things you might not know about me…..
I am addicted to Diet coke
I have a slight hoarding problem (see the stick mentioned above)
My son is named after a Painter, a Musician and a Norse God!
I can't wear high heels
I love to make lists!

I love a commission so if you fancy coming up with something new that you can't see here send me a message and we can chat :)
