I’m a printed textile designer, who loves adding personality to fabrics and products in the swim, active and apparel markets.
Things that inspire my designs are current trends, as well as traditional textile designs from all over the world and of course mother nature.
I specialise in creating original bespoke print designs, using techniques such as painting, illustration, photography and CAD programs.
Services I provide include:
Original artwork development
Production ready technical repeats
Reworking vintage prints
Trend mood boards

“I have had the pleasure of working with Meryl as a freelance artist with White Buffalo Studio. Meryl is always more than happy to work with us on custom designs on top of her weekly print directives. She also delivers on time and will offer multiple options. She manages to find the balance between our needs and her own personal style which we love. She has a great eye for composition, layout and color. She has so much to offer for whomever may employ.” Leslie Galland, Owner of White Buffalo Studio, Los Angeles - USA
“Meryl is a design chameleon, whom I have worked with on a project basis for a few years. The first projects were set designs for music videos, editorial fashion shoots and television ads for Eoin Dillon Studio. She helped me digitally visualize and create sets adding her own creative flair.
I have recently launched gender neutral fashion label Reuben Avenue, for which she has designed the brand logo and a hand painted planet print for the line. She brings a fresh perspective and adaptability to our projects. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Meryl and would highly recommend her work.” Eoin Dillon, Owner of Reuben Avenue, Dublin - Ireland
“Meryl is a talented artist who was able to take direction well for the concept needed. I would definitely use her in the future.” Ashley Wakefield, Owner of Wakefield Design Studio, USA.
"Meryl designed the wrapping paper, packaging and logo for my independent jewellery business. She followed the brief which was to design prints based on the current collections. My jewellery reflects simplistic geometric shapes and is hugely influenced by Scandinavian minimalism. Meryl produced outstanding quality in her work and is extremely focussed on intricate detail. I am very impressed with the results and many customers have already commented on how beautiful it is. I would use her again without a second thought. Thank you Meryl, it was a pleasure to work with you!" Clare Potterton, Founder and designer, Velvet Parsnips, UK.
