Ali Brookes is a Surface Pattern Designer from England. She likes to describe herself as a curious person with the habits of a magpie and loves nothing more than designing from her home studio in rural Northamptonshire.
After graduating with a First Class Honours Degree in Printed Textiles from Derby University, she started work as a lecturer teaching visual studies to interior design students and freelancing as a surface pattern designer creating colourful work for the home decor and stationery markets. Ali also has experience in the manufacturing of glass and ceramic transfers for companies such as Royal Worcester and Denby.
After taking a career break to have her family, Ali has returned to the industry she loves. Pattern design is a true obsession and she has done many online courses to feed her addiction. She always starts the design process with a drawing, painting or cut paper and manipulates the final design digitally.
When she is not designing, you can find her hanging out with her family and knitting colourful socks!
