Ashley Thomas is a designer and illustrator based in the historic Harley Gallery Studios on the beautiful Welbeck Estate. She launched her own brand of home accessories working from a design studio in her attic.
Over the past seven years her business has gone from strength to strength and her work is now available in interior boutiques, gift shops and galleries across the UK, Paris and Tokyo. She makes a range of handmade cushions, quirky tea towels, unique cards and limited edition art-prints and wallpaper, all printed and made in England.
Ashley specialises in digital design, although traditionally trained in screen-printing. "It gives me much more freedom. I am not limited to the amount of colours I can use in my work and it makes my products much more affordable."
"I was always drawing as a child whether it was my pets, flowers or landscapes. I was surrounded by animals from a young age, I grew up on an equestrian centre on the outskirts of London where my parents bred race horses for a very wealthy family. This is probably why I obsessively draw animals and feature them in my work. My inspiration can come from the smallest detail, such as the pattern on a vintage plate or watching the busy little birds in my garden." She aims to produce designs that are fun, curious and make people smile.
