Ellen Merchant is a decorative artist, designer & printmaker based in London. Drawing from folk art, antique textiles and historical houses and gardens, her pattern-focused approach to design is playful, painterly and expresses the joy of the handmade mark. Ellen demonstrates an original take on traditional hand-printing methods which is informed by her unique instinct for combinations of colour and pattern; treading the line between traditional and modern.
