Beck is a surface designer and maker living in Melbourne (Australia), who has a love of creating patterns.
Whilst working as a graphic designer for many years and yearning to create on more tactile mediums, she enrolled herself into a couple of screen-printing short courses, which led her to starting a textiles course and discover the world of repeating patterns.
She started Fabric Drawer in 2012 after travelling and then living in London, spending lots of hours wondering how to follow her creative passions.
Things started very small and organically, by being involved in a few small craft markets selling products she’d designed and made. Not deterred by the minimal sales, she continued to create her patterns and products and has been part of some larger design markets in Melbourne. As well as making her own range of products, Beck also worked with an art agent in American, licensing her artwork on a range gift/party ware and greeting cards. Since flying solo, she’s collaborated with a range of local and international companies.
Outside of design life, she’s a busy mum to two daughters and she still works and freelances as a graphic designer.
