Hi, I’m Fabia Goff and welcome to my studio. I'm an artist and designer based in Folkestone, Kent, specialising in fabulously floral surface patterns, textiles, homeware and prints. My products range from fabric wall hangings, linocut prints, tea towels, up-cycled furniture, to art and giclée prints, personalised collaborations and collections.
I’ve worked in the design industry for eight years as a product, graphic, surface pattern and technical designer. Throughout my work history, I’ve collaborated with various brands, from high street names, including John Lewis and Laura Ashley to high-end clients including Wolf&Badger and Makers Cabinet. I’ve received global recognition for my surface pattern design of The Worlds First Dress Release and was signed to Wolf & Badger following my design of a retro 70s floral for Anaphe silk sustainable dresses before creating my own 'Kentish garden florals' and 'exotic jungle' designs.
I'm passionate about sustainability, mental health and women's equality and strive to give a percentage of profits to charities supporting these causes. Body neutrality, connecting with nature, and creating meaningful art are important to me. I love creativity to flow as art isn’t simple; it’s busy, creative and free. I aspire for those to feel joy, tranquillity, inspiration and a sense of freedom with my art.
I’d describe my designs as inspired by a combination of William Morris, Henri Matisse and Marimekko meets Orla Keily, Mary Quant and Yayoi Kusama. My influences are far broader though, from a lifetime of observing art, fashion and the world around me, I have been heavily influenced by post impressionists, product design sketching and renders, film (think classics like the 1935 Papageno paper cutouts), flora, fauna, architecture and landscapes from across the world when travelling.
