An avowed collector of design ideas, Neisha Crosland likens herself to a biologist collecting specimens. “I collect motifs and classify them into designs, taking inspiration from the way nature organizes itself,” she explains. Known for her dynamic repeats of geometric and natural forms as well as her unusual color combinations, Crosland serves a worldwide clientele, creating textiles and surface patterns for home and fashion accessories, rugs, wallpapers, flooring and stationery.
Crosland trained in textile design at the Camberwell College of Arts in London. At the Royal College of Art in London, where she studied subsequently, she turned her attention to printmaking. A well-received post-graduate show helped launch her career, which has propelled her to the forefront of British design. The recipient of numerous awards, Crosland was named as a Royal Designer for Industry in 2006. She resides and works in London, England.
