DAY IN THE LIFE - AMBER DAVENPORT

One of our cushion competition winners - Amber Davenport took over our Ohh Deer Instagram last Wednesday! She gave us a little in-sight into her day and even introduced us to her cat, Fred.

Hi! I’m Amber, I’ll be taking over Ohh Deer’s Instagram today!⠀

I’m an Illustrator and Surface Pattern designer from Manchester and am currently studying in the final year of my degree at Manchester School of Art. Along side this I run a little etsy shop called Ambers Textiles! I love plants and my cat Fred, who will hopefully be making an appearance here later on today!

I start my day (later than I should) packing up prints ready to be posted. This is one of my favourite parts of what I do, I’m a sucker for a nice bit of twine.⠀

It’s definitely time for lunch now… and also time to give my super sassy friend a little bit of attention. Fred keeps me company during long days at my desk by knocking my pencils on the floor and sitting in my paint.

Ok, finally time to start painting. I generally prefer to start painting later on in the day after getting all the other stuff out of the way. Here’s my desk, with a few of my favourite plants! (Which yes has been cleaned for this photo).⠀

Still at my desk and will be for a little while longer yet. I usually work through the evening, mainly because I love what I do!⠀ ⠀
So I thought I’d leave you with a little work in progress shot of what I’m working on at the moment, there’s going to be a greenhouse in the white area! ⠀

Hope you all enjoyed my takeover!⠀
