Elena Essex is an illustrator and surface pattern designer based in Hove. She's a big fan of colour and wildlife and as a mother of 4 lively children, she enjoys creating illustrations and patterns that are as beautiful (but maybe not as chaotic!), as her family life.
Her artwork has appeared on lunchboxes, Wellington boots, greetings cards and rucksacks - who knows what will be next?
