Nicola Hanrahan Designs
Birds, baking and other sweet things... Nicola translates her love for nature into art by incorporating detailed hand drawn illustrations with digitally created patterns. This passion for wildlife, pretty tea sets and delicious cakes comes from a childhood growing up in Yorkshire; going on many beautiful walks in the Yorkshire Dales and visits to quaint country tea rooms, something that Nicola still loves to do at any opportunity! British garden birds in particular are a key part of Nicola's work, as she has cherished memories of watching them in her Mum’s and Granny’s charming gardens. Nicola's works are created by drawing, painting and sewing in her Yorkshire based studio. Her collection of illustrations and patterns for interiors, accessories and greetings cards are a whimsical celebration of British nature, wildlife and tea room culture. All of the themes and colour palettes in the designs come from nature, and are a way of bringing the beauty of an English country garden into the home.
