Jessica Hogarth specialises in surface pattern and textile design. She was born and raised in Robin Hood’s Bay, a picturesque fishing village on the North Yorkshire coast. After a childhood spent roaming the village’s atmospheric streets, Jessica attended Leeds College of Art. She studied Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design.
Jessica graduated from the surface pattern design course in 2010 with a first class honours degree and immediately exhibited at the New Designers exhibition in London. Jessica was offered an in-house design position with a Manchester based company. During her time in this position Jessica both drew and coloured design layouts that were then sold for use across a wide variety of interiors fabric and paper products. In May 2011 Jessica left this position and returned to her homeland in North Yorkshire to begin her surface pattern business Jessica Hogarth Designs.
