I’m Deborah Diane Turner.

I am an illustrator and surface pattern designer from the UK.


I graduated in 2005 with a degree in Graphic Design, Illustration from Central St Martins in London.


I have worked on editorial illustrations, magazine covers, greetings cards, wedding stationery, and more, and as a graphic and website designer. I have recently moved away from web and graphics, and started refocusing my practice on all kinds of illustration and surface pattern design for textiles, home, and paper.


I sell work outright, licence and accept commissions.

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited, whereas imagination encircles the entire world...

Albert Einstein.

I generally work by hand…

to create initial motifs, sketches, drawings, and paintings with pencils and paper, ink and brush, mixed media, paint, and more.

…and finish digitally

with pixels and vectors in both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, to create anything from repeating patterns, editorial illustrations, digital paintings, and even to character designs.

I am a qualified graphic designer with a BA (Hon) in Graphic Design with Illustration from Central St Martins in London. I’ve now been working with website design and graphics for print for over 10 years.


I am proficient with HTML, JavaScript, PHP, and CSS – as well as the major software packages for design.


Although I’m not taking on as many graphics and web projects these days, I’m still taking on the odd project: so, get in contact and let’s see if we’re a fit.
