My name is Irene and I am an illustrator based in London.
I graduated in Multimedia Communication and Visual Arts at the University of Florence, Italy. I then moved to London to specialise in drawing, visual arts and graphic design at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and City University.
After some time as a graphic designer in a software company in Central London I decided to start working as an illustrator.
For my illustrations I use ink pen, watercolour, pencils and digital touching-up.
I love pattern designs.
Illustration pattern designs are repeated decorative drawings that achieve a unique visual effect.
They offer great flexibility in a number of different applications, such as fashion, textiles, wallpaper, publishing, wrapping paper, gift cards, kitchenware and much more.
Many of my designs are inspired by nature and wildlife. I start my work drawing on paper using pencils and watercolour paints. Then I make digital creations, ready to be exported for different applications.
Some of my designs are available for license. I also work freelance on commission for bespoke illustration projects.
