Hi and welcome!

I'm Claire, the designer behind Studio Esperluette. I'm a self-taught French surface pattern designer. I'm currently based in the beautiful city of Lyon, France, but have also lived and worked in Vietnam and Canada.


My background is mostly in writing and proof editing, hence my studio name which relates to that other passion of mine (esperluette meaning ampersand in French).


I've always had a deep love for patterns and prints. A few years back, I was hooked on pattern design and enjoyed it since then. I've graduated from the Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design in 2017.


I love designing colorful, fresh designs. My inspiration comes from my travels and nature mostly. My motifs are primarily hand drawn and then brought into Illustrator to create beautiful patterns.


Thank you for visiting!
