About me
My name is Arnelle Woker and I am an illustrator and surface pattern designer. After completing my BA Information Design degree at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, I lived in Johannesburg and pursued graphic design and animation. Two years later I moved to Cape Town where I rediscovered my love of illustration. After spending five years in the creative industry I moved to London where I have been ever since. My South African roots play a large part in inspiring my use of colour and pattern. I love drawing people and often depict women. A lot of my work centres around empowerment, diversity and body positivity. This can be seen in some of the more recent patterns and portrait illustrations I’ve created. When I launched my stationery range 2 years ago, I was hoping to offer something fun, contemporary and relatable. The simplicity of the greeting cards and wrapping make it versatile and allow you to use them for multiple occasions. I work exclusively with UK printers to create beautiful everyday items with an emphasis on quality and sustainability. I am working on expanding my range to include fabrics, homeware and clothing!
