Based in a studio at 401 Studios in South London, Bess Harding is always busy drawing, cutting, stitching and colouring. She loves the freedom that the studio space gives her to experiment and develop her own individual style. With a variety of artistic talents under her belt, Bess calls herself a freelance illustrator/designer/maker and her portfolio ranges from witty children’s illustrations and craft books to pattern design and more recently papercuts. Her textile-based florals allow Bess to channel her passion for handcraft design and to make something tangible away from the computer. Here, she mixes stitching with a variety of textured fabrics to create this quaint collection of folksy originals.
