I'm Ali Cottrell, a Surface Pattern Designer and Illustrator based in Norwich.
I studied Textiles Design at Norwich University of Art before relocating to Cheshire to work in digital design in the textiles industry.
In 2018 I moved back to Norwich to work as Textiles Technician at NUA in the screen print facility.
This encouraged my passion for screen print and I now work from my light and airy studio space in the heart of the City, creating colourful illustrations and patterns inspired by the natural world and our impact on it.
I also work as a freelance designer creating prints for high street fashion brands and manage my shared,
permanent shop space No.31 alongside fellow printmaker Printer Johnson.
Ive worked with lots of amazing brands, including Virgin Holidays, ASOS, River Island, Next, Colter London, Due Diligence and Burtons.
