Linda Tordoff is a surface pattern designer and illustrator who works from her home studio in the UK. She graduated in 2001 from Staffordshire University with a first class degree in surface pattern design.

Since then she has worked mainly in the greetings card industry as an illustrator.  Recently she has been drawn back to her love of surface pattern and has created designs for childrenswear, stationery, and home decor.

All of her designs begin with drawing, painting or collage. She then scans them into photoshop where she creates the finished artwork.

She lives with her three young children and their cat Primrose.
