Heather Dutton I’ve always been a dreamer, maker & a bit of a creative busy bee.
I began my career in the fashion industry, designing clothes & traveling to far-off places to source fabrics & work with manufacturers. It was an incredible journey that really helped shape my knowledge about the world of design in general. It was during that time that my love for textiles grew & before I knew it I found myself sketching fabric designs more than I was sketching fashions. I decided that life was too short not to follow your passion so that’s exactly what I did. In 2000 I left the world of fashion design & launched my own surface design studio. It was the best decision that I’ve made & I haven’t looked back!
Nestled in my lime green studio in Kennebunk, I spend my days creating fresh surface designs that have appeared on apparel, home décor, wall coverings, lighting, tabletop & paper products throughout some of the world’s top retailers. When I’m not designing you’re bound to find me walking on the beach with my sweet Sussex spaniel Gracie Mae, or heading off on a fun road trip in search of cool treasures at flea markets & thrift shops.
