Acquiring inspiration from her Interior Design background and comfortable beach lifestyle Jessica's design method takes place by incorporating a variety of different platforms beginning with pencil sketches, marker pen illustrations, watercolours + gouache to totally realise what the total colour palette + pattern will feel like.

This produces genuine prints that represent her individual style and flair for textile design.
