elly ren designs

Hello and welcome to Elly Ren Designs. I'm a freelance surface pattern and textile designer based in Bristol, recently voted the most artistic city in the UK! I produce bold colourful patterns for the fashion and homeware markets and I especially enjoy working with trends.

My heart is bursting with creativity and passion, and through my work I wish to pass that along. Welcome to my Textile Design Portfolio, the best space to browse my latest projects. Here I've presented just a small selection of my work but there's more to view here on my Instagram account and I can provide a larger selection by request.


As an arts practitioner for over 20 years, I've worked in a wide variety of media from sculpture to performance art to painting but since 2017 surface pattern design has become my vocation, and the realisation of a longtime dream. I’ve been keeping busy lately with commissioned work and passion projects as well, but I’m always looking for new opportunities. For information about collaborations and my availability for other projects, please be in touch using the email address below.

No matter what you have in mind, I can manage it all while maintaining my high standards of quality. Call today and let me transform your vision into exceptional and original textile designs that are guaranteed to please.


Through careful research and a thorough ideation process, I always manage to come up with something fresh and unique that inspires.
