“If you’re looking for an edgy elegance that will make people gasp with admiration, whether it’s a statement wallpaper in your living space, a pair of chairs upholstered in a fabulous fabric, a feature wall in a restaurant or cafe or an instagrammable ‘wow’ wall at your next event, I’d love to work with you, too!”

Hello! I’m Trish Burton,

I design and create luxe surface art that is intended to elevate or inspire a space, lifestyle or product. My designs are created in close collaboration with my clients to ensure the end product is a one off, custom art piece, that has been passionately created with the client and their unique personality and requirements front of mind. 

I have worked in the design industry for 20+ years, gaining expertise in a number of fields including branding, illustration, editorial, surface design and textile design. I have worked with hundreds of people to make their unique vision come to life as well as coached and educated countless individuals in graphic design and textile design. 

One of the best pieces of feedback I have ever received from a client was “I loved working with Trish, It was like working with a best friend, she just got me”.

Collaborating closely with people to really get to know them, and discover their needs and vision beyond a surface level, is incredibly rewarding and motivates what I do. It’s quite a moment when I get to experience the raw emotion of a client when they are presented with the end artistic outcome that is a visual reflection of their dreams and inspiration. It is clear that they feel a sense of ownership and pride over their design. That right there… is my moment!

If you’re looking for an edgy elegance that will make people gasp with admiration, whether it’s a statement wallpaper in your living space, a pair of chairs upholstered in a fabulous fabric, a feature wall in a restaurant or cafe or an instagrammable ‘wow’ wall at your next event I’d love to work with you, too!

  

I’ve worked with an extensive list of clients from a variety of small and medium businesses, including one of Melbourne’s top textile printing boutiques.

My work as an artist and designer has been featured in Inside Out Magazine, a leading magazine for interior Design and Home Decor, the arts and home sections in the Herald Sun newspaper and The Age newspaper, as well as interviews and product round-ups in several online media platforms.

 

When I’m not creating beautiful pieces for clients you’ll find me…

Spending some valuable family time with my husband Chris, son Jack and our 2 cavoodles, Evie and Bella. This is usually outdoors, probably with a camera in hand, on a bike ride, at the beach or exploring some new neighbourhood or park. 

I really want to say looking after my plants as they are hugely inspiring for my work but to be honest I’m having a very hard time keeping a fiddle leaf fig alive (feel free to send any advice!).

In a gallery, somewhere, anywhere. I thrive on that feeling of ‘goosebumps’ when I see spectacular works that, quite literally, make me gasp. That moment that everything stands still and I get to explore the colours, the textures, the subject matter, the technique. This is nearly always followed by a wine to give me a chance to unwind. I’m usually bouncing off the walls after a great exhibition… it takes a special person to endure a gallery visit with me!!!

 

In case you’re after a bit more info about me, here’s a look into my weird and wonderful side…

I love to read but I can’t commit to one book at a time. I generally have four or five books on the go. A couple of fiction books, a business book or two, maybe a self help book and perhaps a ‘learn french’ book too.

I still have my very first set of derwent pencils that are now over 30 years old. I don’t use them as they have become a bizarre relic…oh and they are still in colour order, all the labels facing up and pristinely sharpened.

I am obsessed with colourful, crazy fun socks and am convinced they can change and control my mood!

Annnnd…

I have a pet frog!

 

If you’d like some more info about how I can help with your project or how we can collaborate, get in touch via my contact form below and we can arrange a time to chat.

 

Thanks for getting to know me a little better,

Have an amazing day,

 

Trish xo
