Hello and welcome!

 

I'm Linda Tordoff, a surface pattern designer and illustrator.  I work from my little home studio in the UK under the name of Paintlove Studio, so called because I love to paint!

I create whimsical, painterly illustrations and surface pattern designs using a combination of collage, painting, papercutting, drawing and photoshop.

 

I studied surface pattern design at Staffordshire University, graduating in 2001 with a First Class Honours degree. I then worked inhouse as an illustrator for a large greetings card publisher.  After the birth of my first child, (I now have three) I began freelancing for greetings card companies as an illustrator.  

 

I've always wanted to create my own greetings cards and prints so I've recently designed a range which is available online in my Etsy shop.

 

I continue to freelance for various companies.  My illustrative designs are perfect for childrenswear, stationery, greetings cards, book illustration, art prints and fabric designs.

 

I am represented by the amazing Bright Group International.
