Hello! I'm Lilian a.k.a. Merry Makewell. I'm a creative soul from Cardiff, Wales with a leaning towards pattern design.
My journey to art and design has been an unusual one. I loved languages and science at school, then went on to get a degree in Aeronautics, followed by a Masters in Semiconductor Science. I worked as a Semiconductor Process Engineer/Team Leader for 10 years before leaving to set up my own business making soap and skincare products, which I also did for 10 years. During that time I always had creative hobbies - dressmaking, crochet, embroidery, cardmaking and paper crafts.
My love for bold patterns and striking fabric started a long time ago, but it wasn't until I came across a class about making repeat patterns that it even occurred to me to create my own. And so I started down that path. I'm not entirely sure where this road is going to lead. but I think it will be a fun and interesting journey!
