Hi, I’m Sarah York! I’m a textile and surface pattern Designer. l’ve been drawn to art, textiles and patterns from a young age, before I knew that the job of pattern designer even existed. I get excited about the entire process of creating from concept, painting, to repeat and seeing designs on a finished product.
 
I’m a California native and currently live in Washington state. I love the natural beauty both states have to offer and both inform my work.  The adventure of travelling is the best kind of inspiration and I am always planning my next trip. I also find inspiration around the city, in nature, museums, colors, books, films, and always flowers. Florals are my favorite inspiration and pattern subject! 

My background is varied, as I have a BA in Art History and graduated from the Institute for Textile Print Design in Berkeley, CA (formerly CA School of Professional Fabric Design) where I trained as an apprentice in classical hand painting techniques and Photoshop and Illustrator. I really enjoy the combination of hand painting with the latest technology to create something totally unique and special. I also studied Fashion Design in London and have worked for Interior Design firms and a high end home textile design firm in San Francisco.

I would love to connect with you about freelance opportunities, licensing or purchasing artwork. I have worked with companies such as The Land of Nod, Tesco, Cloud9 Fabrics, Hallmark and Minted. I'm excited to work with you! Please contact me and we can chat!

Best, 
Sarah
