Hi, I'm Gemma. The designer, maker and face of Gemma Keith Designs. I started my business in 2017, drawing and painting prints to sell. Since then my range of products have fantastically expanded. I now sell a range of textiles and gifts to shops around Kent and at the occasional local fair.
I am a trained artist from Marden, Kent where I started my creative journey at UCA Maidstone where I specialised in Fashion and Textiles. I knew I could paint though I wanted something more than a hanging artwork. That's where textile design came in. I was able to transfer my illustrations and bold brush strokes onto energetic items like scarves and wallpaper. I then went on to study BA Textile Design at University of the Arts London, Chelsea for three years.
After graduating, I started working for a few creative and non-creative companies. Though I wanted to develop my creative side further. So I decided to push my own creations and develop my own business. A year on, it was the best career decision I have made.
