Rhianne graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Textiles and Surface Design in Summer 2017. After spending some time exhibiting her artwork and interning in London she decided to take her dream of running her own creative business to the next step. Rhianne Sian Designs was later established in December 2017.
Rhianne’s designs are mainly inspired by her travels and beautiful rural surroundings within County Durham, in the North East of England. She illustrates various artwork including wildlife, landscapes, architecture and florals. All designs involve various stages of development. Rhianne starts illustrating her inspiration, often using graphite, pen and ink or vibrant paints. She then develops her artwork further, adding various layers of detail, texture and colour to give a contemporary and stylised finish to her designs.
