Hello, I'm Janine White, owner of A Little White Workshop.
I am a creative freelance illustrator, surface pattern designer, and designer/maker.


I have always loved art in all forms but developed a love of pattern design, various textile techniques (especially screen printing and embroidery) and laser cutting and engraving whilst studying Surface Pattern Design at university. 
A bit more about me...
- Lover of surface pattern design, screen printing and embroidery
- Obsessed by laser cutting and engraving (I own a laser cutter- it's VERY exciting!)
- Aspire to do a natural conservation tour - especially to Costa Rica or the Galapagos Islands!
- I can't get enough of natural history and our understanding of the world around us.
- I am fascinated by the tiniest details in nature.
- I also have a keen interest in the conservation of historical buildings (I am from a family of builders specialising in conservation and restoration works).
As an avid admirer of the natural world, I am instinctively drawn to the beauty of nature and the surrounding environment and reflect this through detailed illustrations and patterns using a variety of drawing materials.
These illustrations are often scanned into the computer to be edited in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.  If I have not already added colour to my work, I will sometimes digitally colour it in before creating repeat patterns.
These illustrations and patterns are then used on finished products, such as scarves, cushions, laser cut images and prints.




Here for your freelance illustration and surface pattern design needs.
