Designing for Decorative Art Book


When I first started to paint in the Decorative Art style, I was creating my own designs based on photos of the original pieces. It was a natural process for me, but I soon realised others struggled with it. I started to teach design in my own studio to help others create their own pieces, following the process I use. 

This is a 30 page, full size, black and white book. It will guide you through all stages of planning appropriate designs for your projects.
  • Choosing a style based on the shape, purpose and construction of your project.
  • Design preparation, making a pattern and design layout.
  • Step by step diagrams for basic and continuous design layouts.
  • A 13 page visual style guide from Celtic through to Art Nouveau.
This book was written to encourage Decorative Artists to explore their own creativity, create personal pieces and enjoy the designing process as much as I do.
