Floral Colour prints

Limited Edition Prints from my Watercolour Pencil Drawings

These are quality Giclee prints copied from my original watercolour pencil drawings. Each one is on museum grade digital fine art paper using light fast ink. They are the same scale as my original artworks and printed onto a similar textured heavyweight paper. Each limited edition print is signed with the edition number and prints are available to buy on Etsy.

Stationery

Selection of Gift Cards

My cards are prints taken from my original watercolour pencil drawings. These cards are available to buy on Etsy. The cards measure A6 size and the square card measures 5" by 5". Each flower card is printed on FSC heavyweight card with a recycled natural brown envelope enclosed in a cellophane envelope. The card is blank inside, and features the flowers name and a thumbnail image on the reverse of the card.

Textile Artwork

Original Textile pieces

With my background in textiles, I still love working with fabric and enjoy using the sewing machine as a means of drawing. These original textile pieces are created using layers of fabric, hand dried flowers and machine embroidery. They are all sold as original, unique pieces, mounted ready to be framed. Please contact me for further information.

GRAPHITE PENCIL DRAWINGS

Black and White Artwork

These large black and white graphite floral studies are magnified sections of a flower. My intention is to make the viewer look at a specific flower in a more intimate way. I aim, by removing the distraction of colour, to show the intricacy of the flowers, the detail, patterns and form that may not have been observed in such a way before. I also hope to project my fascination and love of the flowers. I have always enjoyed the medium of pencil from a young age and still love working in this way. I offer these drawings as a one off commission or as a limited edition, full size print from my original artwork. The drawings are 14 1/2" x 14 1/2" (36cm x 36cm). Please contact me for further information.

Bridal Bouquet Commissions

Unique Floral Illustrations

I also produce bridal bouquets drawings on commission for a unique wedding or anniversary gift. You are welcome to contact me via email about this. I can draw a floral study as a group, featuring the flowers from the bride's bouquet or an individual floral study featuring the main flower. Each drawing is signed and dated and I can date the artwork with the wedding or anniversary date. Please contact me for further information.

Deborah Ann Crago

I was born and grew up in Cornwall, where I still visit regularly, and currently live in West Sussex. With my love of gardens, the countryside and working on our own garden, I am never short of inspiration. I studied Woven Textile Design at Loughborough University and have worked creating designs for interior textiles for more than 15 years. My textile artwork based on 'The Lost Gardens of Heligan' in Cornwall was featured in 'Gardens Illustrated' Magazine and was exhibited at exhibitions in the Midlands. 'The Lost Gardens of Heligan' commissioned me to design a tea towel which was sold in their on-site shop. My other commissions include the creation of artwork for a bedding company in Ireland. After several years of designing for interior textiles both as freelance and in-house designer, I have again been drawn back to my love of drawing.

I have always enjoyed the beauty, variety and intricacy of flowers, the tactile nature of fabric and the medium of pencil. I hope to continue creating artwork that combines these mediums and themes. I hope that you enjoy looking at my work and I would like to thank you for taking time to read a little about me.
