Paula McGloin is a freelance illustrator, surface pattern designer and coffee lover! She lives and works in the bustling city of Dublin in Ireland. Her vibrant designs are warm and playful with a distinct retro inspired style.
Possessing a fascination for ornament and bold colours, she draws her inspiration from nature, everyday life, travel and a love of vintage fabrics. After graduating from the National College of Art in Design in Dublin, Paula began her career as a Graphic Designer. Drawing and illustrating became one of her favourite pastimes and in 2013 she transformed it into a new career direction.
She has worked on a variety of illustration projects, creating unique designs for fabric, packaging, accessories, ceramics, appliqué and stationery collections. Some of her previous clients include Marks & Spencer, Target, Urban Outfitters and Bewley's Ireland.
