Jan Olive is a Textile & Surface Designer based in the UK. After many years working as an artist she attended Plymouth University studying Interior Textiles and Surface Design, graduating with a First Class honours degree in 2016.
Since graduating Jan has produced her own range of products alongside creating designs for various companies around the world.
Inspiration for Jan’s designs comes from many sources including nature, architecture and history. A regular visitor to museums and galleries, Jan often ﬁnds inspiration in ancient artefacts, jewellery and crockery as well as myths and legends.
As a result, Jan’s style is eclectic, but all designs start with her own paintings, illustrations or photography which she then develops digitally into repeating patterns or placement designs. www.janolive.co.uk
