Born in Manchester England, Angela studied a BA(Hons)in Surface Pattern Design at Staffordshire University. Since graduating, she worked mainly in the home textile and furnishing market, designing patterns and styling ranges for a number of major UK retailers and international clients.

In 2010 Angela took the brave step to set up her own freelance studio and Hiccup Studio Designs was born. Angela immediately began to undertake various design projects for both UK and International customers in the interior, stationery and giftware industries. 

Angela’s work is largely inspired by current print trends within interior design including textiles and wallpapers which she then translates into highly decorative, textural patterns. Her portfolio is fun, playful and quirky and inspired by nature and flowers – along with a small obsession for bird and butterfly imagery!
