Purveyor of decorative textiles!
Patternista is the registered business name and trade mark of textile designer, Becky Lim. After being based in the beautiful surf resort of Byron Bay, Australia for 10 years, Becky recently returned to the heritage coastline of Suffolk.
Growing up amongst an eccentric family, she attributes a good proportion of her creativity to her mother and Grandmother, a bespoke tailor of "Fine Gentleman's Suiting".
Other family members include her extraordinary Uncle: Richard Taylor, talented maker of Clavichords and Harpsichords; her brother: Harvey Lim, former Norwich City Football Club professional soccer player - now proprietor of Whistler's "Art Junction" Gallery (Canada), and her amazing father - former Iron Chef and the best darn Asian restaurateur in the world!
"I have been illustrating and creating since I can remember, and put these pursuits into practice after studying textiles in the UK, and Surface Print/Textile Design at RMIT Melbourne (Australia). Whilst in Melbourne I exhibited at the annual textile "Scarf Competition" curated by Craft Victoria and won RMIT's "Bread and Butter" Design Award, judged by Abigail Crompton of Third Drawer Down.
"I also secured treasured placements at Vixen Australia (under Georgia Chapman), in her former silk printing studio, and at Ulster Weavers / Irish Linen (Belfast), working on homeware lines for iconic British store: Harrods.
