What exactly is special about GLORIA DESIGN?
The London-based designer-illustrator's designs and drawings have graced books, boutiques and textiles for decades but now she has come into her own with world recognition.
Her lovable animals, moon-faced babes, name it, are a heady mix which is larger than life, yet is life.
An audacious use of strong colour in a blend of textures allows her characters, like pre-school Tanya, to supersede mere illustrations and be used in a variety of media such as paperware, textiles, porcelain and leather.
Above all GLORIA is a creator, a creator of inimitable characters that appear in her many children's books, on marketable toys, and an assortment of objects like coffee mugs, magnets, cards - but also handkerchiefs, towels and aprons.
GLORIA adds zest to life, but also life to literature. She brings to a variety of media colour, fantasy and imagination.
