Hello! I’m Elaine Lee, a Canadian surface pattern designer and illustrator based in London, United Kingdom. 

Over the years, I have worked on projects that include: pattern design for branded packaging and business cards, as well as illustration for stationery, art prints, and packaging.

When I’m not drawing or designing, you can find me tending to my growing family of houseplants, learning a new creative skill (knitting, crocheting, pottery, sewing, screen printing, brush lettering – to name a few), and staying up well past my bedtime getting lost in books.

Feel free to reach me at  hello@elainedraws.com.
