About-Vickie Head Shot - 1Oct13.JPG

Thanks for checking in and having a look at my work!  I'm an Artist and Surface Pattern Designer with a degree in Fine Art living in the beautiful Chiltern countryside just outside of London.  Never satisfied with a conventional life, I live on-site at a tennis club which reflects our love for bustle rather than tennis itself.

Our home is continually going through a creative evolution, pushed along by my love of interiors - but the real driving force has been adapting to our growing family.  

And I have thrown myself into this wholeheartedly!

I can now skateboard with my son, I can make a den in any cubby hole with whatever is at hand, I have negotiation skills that can win round any toddler and I have learnt the art of doing a full day's work on no sleep at all - but everyone needs a moment alone in the day to look forward to!

These moments only have to be the length of a cup of coffee - a sketchbook doodle - a magazine flick - a diary entry: but the daily promise of these kept me in the game.  This ritual began with me reaching for a special mug or a cushion in a bright, bold fabric or positioning myself in front of a poster.  I started to notice that I was getting a creative kick from seeing and experiencing quality art around the home and my passion for surface pattern began to take hold.

So from this Ameo Designs was born - I'm an Artist creating surface patterns and designs, aiming to give a creative lift to anyone who sees or uses a product with my design on it.

So kick back, phone to silent, have a browse through gallery and take a peek in shop and have some Ameo time.......
