'Lily Corcoran is an illustrator and graduate of Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork City. Under the name Petal to Petal, Lily illustrates and designs a range of fine art prints, paper goods and textiles and also collaborates with other artists and companies.

Working from her studio in West Cork, each design begins as a single hand-drawn illustration which is coloured digitally and applied to paper goods and homeware. Lily works in a unique hand-drawn style which plays with subject and space, highlighting the detail in her abstract floral designs. Lily draws inspiration from the beautiful countryside surrounding her home and is inspired by patterns in nature and Japanese and Scandinavian design. Lily's aim is to create unique, beautiful objects and pieces of art that people would love to have in their homes.'

As well as working on designs for Petal to Petal, I am a full-time Mum to my little girl, Emilia, so my working hours revolve around nap time! I am currently working on a new range for A/W 2019 but if you’d like to get in touch to discuss work, request my wholesale price catalogue (limited stock available) or just to say ‘hello’, you can reach me at petaltopetal@gmail.com
