- to help you make beautiful products by creating original patterns, illustrations and colors for you that bring joy, delight and wellbeing to your customers' everyday lives.
My name is Beate Allerton and I am a surface pattern designer and owner of of Gaianami Studio, based in the beautiful countryside of Aberdeenshire, Scotland and neverending source of inspiration.
I am passionate about creativity and helping make everyday life a bit more more joyful, seeing my designs as wee tokens of happiness that instill a sense of wellbeing and connection.
My design inspiration is founded in my love for nature and this world as a source of wellbeing which is also reflected in my logo. I love going into the hills for a walk or go for a run around our local castle estate, I enjoy travelling and exploring other landscapes and cultures, especially historical cultures, and I enjoy practicing mindfulness, yoga and Qi Gong.
My pattern creation tool kit consists of pencils, graphic pens and paper, Wacom graphics tablet, camera, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
