Este originates from Pretoria, South Africa, and now lives in Berkshire England.

Este has transitioned to surface design from her background in ceramic and textile design. Her style represents a more abstract feel, but there is a strong sense of familiarity brought to the forefront of the audience’s mind by the use naturalistic shapes and themes.

Este’s works are also inspired by themes such as travel, nature, dreams, seasons, and sentiments. She also enjoys incorporating forms present within her everyday surroundings into her designs.

The layering of colours within her designs, including simplified plant forms & her trademark floral depictions, ensure a freshness and vibrant energy throughout her work.
