About the artist
Carole Fenwick is MaggieMagoo Designs. She is a surface pattern designer living and working in Leeds, UK. Carole loves plants, flowers and insects, and you’ll find them throughout her designs.
Carole’s work is colourful and decorative, with lots of pattern, inspired by nature, folk art and everything vintage. Customers have described her work as a ‘riot of colour that brings joy’. It’s important to Carole that her designs bring happiness as well as being useful and beautiful.
Carole started her design career studying for a degree in surface pattern design and printed textiles at Leeds College of Art. From there she worked for Hallmark Cards as a greetings card designer for almost 20 years.
By 2016 Carole had a growing desire to work with pattern and textiles, so she created Maggiemagoo Designs. Maggie, her rescue dog, was the inspiration for the business name!
At the end of 2019 Carole decided it was time to pursue her freelance career full-time and during 2020 and 2021 she collaborated with some great businesses and has seen her business grow from strength to strength. We are proud to stock Carole’s work at The Whittox Gallery Shop.
