Hi! I am Freya, an artist and designer inspired by plants, patterns and places. After completing a BA in architecture I started Freya's Prints as a way to explore my love of printmaking. I enjoy creating bold, colourful, and immersive illustrations and though most of my work is created digitally, my style is influenced by techniques such as lino printing and pen drawing. I have recently moved from London to Sheffield and am currently studying for a masters in architecture whilst running my shop.
Botanical gardens and greenhouses are a huge source of inspiration for me - I grew up in London visiting Kew Gardens frequently and the Kew glasshouses became my first series of prints. I love the combination of nature and architecture and the sense of escapism.
My business started properly during the first lockdown of 2020 when I finished my job and decided to focus on creating art for a year before starting my masters degree. Over the past year I have branched out from prints and greetings cards into fabric and wallpaper design on Spoonflower.
My prints are available on my online store and through various stockists, including Kew Gardens, Authentic House, Ventnor Botanic Gardens, and 'The Outside In' York. If you are interested in stocking any of my designs I would love to hear from you. Please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch here and I shall send you my wholesale catalogue.
You can read more about my work and my process in Sheffield's 'Now Then' magazine here.
