Portrait of Alison Butler

Alison Butler is the owner of Blooming Designs.  As well as a textile designer, artist and illustrator in her own right, she organises and runs  a range of art workshops and Art in the Barn, a twice yearly creative arts week.

Alison graduated from Loughborough University in 1990 with a degree in printed textiles. In partnership with a fellow student, they set up Blooming Designs and  built a successful business selling textile prints to leading high street fashion chains both in the UK and Internationally. Influenced by free wheeling illustrators such as Quentin Blake, their designs were sold predominantly to the children’s wear market as well as mens and ladieswear.

With a creative flare that is not limited to textiles alone, Alison has also worked with a number of companies to produce large-scale backdrops for corporate events and theatre productions as well as illustrating several children’s books.

Alison lives with her husband and two children on their family farm in the Meon Valley.
