London-based Illustrator and Textile Artist Jennifer Hawkins runs Sapphire Summers Design specialising in Fine Art Prints, fabric design and homewares.
About Sapphire Summers
Sapphire Summers Design was founded, in 2015 by British-born, Wimbledon based, illustrator Jennifer Hawkins to create intricate hand-drawn illustrations on homewares and fine art prints, inspired by nature.
Each individual piece is a work of art, reflecting the rich colours, patterns and symmetry seen in nature, presented in a unique way. All items are decorated with hand-drawn illustrations that are layered and collaged in innovative compositions and feature mainly symmetrical and mandala designs. Sapphire Summers motifs include butterflies, flamingos, birds, jungle animals, bees, frogs and fish. Inspiration for these forms come from various travels to India and South America which have fuelled and inspired this artistic passion and the desire to create beautiful objects.
We Love Sapphire Summers Because…
Jenni has created a unique and innovative collection of designs that can easily update the look of your home, with the addition of new prints or cushions. If you live in London or Surrey, she will visit your home to help you to match cushion colours and designs to create a bespoke interior.
