Here is a story of my textile design and repeat pattern business and what I learned in the process... Hi! My name is Oksana. I am an artist, textile designer and a creative soul. Up to this point I created more than 5000 vector repeat patterns and worked on more than 50 freelance surface pattern design projects. I created my first pattern ever in 2010 and it has changed my life forever. Before this happened, I was creating vector illustrations approximately once per week for my microstock online galleries, where they could be licensed.

For me, there is a warmth to handmade things because they have a story, life, and history that comes from the person who makes them as well as the person who possesses and cares for them. My story is similar to that of most kids who fall in love with art at a young age. Art was the only class in which I excelled in school and the only extracurricular activity I ever stuck to. In high school, I knew I wanted to be an artist, and I wanted to go to art school instead of college. My parents thought it was important to have a liberal arts education.

Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2007, Laura Slater has gone from strength to strength as a creative force in textile design and printing. Printmaking is integral to what Laura does; not only is her work hand screen printed on to linen in her studio in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, but the featured patterns are often made from the marks and patterns made through printmaking processes, such as collography. Laura's home furnishing items can be found in boutiques across the UK, including Heals, as well as select outlets in Europe and the United States. She will also be a featured stall holder at The Hepworth Wakefield Print Fair, 21-22 March 2015. lauraslater.co.uk/ hepworthwakefield.org/printfair/
