Jan and Eve live in rural Hampshire and have known each other for 15 years and have both been in their respective fields for 30 years. In 2016 they decided there was a gap in the market for artist-designed high-quality fabrics at competitive prices.

Eve About Us pic

With over 30 years experience in the interior design world, Eve Morgan is an expert in fabrics and their application and has been creating interiors for private clients via word of mouth since 1988.

Her business is based on reputation and recommendation and she specialises in hand made soft furnishings and curtains. She is a hands on creative, skilled with an upholstery needle and never afraid to learn a new (or re-invent and old) craft. She has a sharp eye for detail which is derived from a firm belief that the environment you live in sets the stage for the rest of your life and is a crucial part of emotional wellbeing.

Eve understands and responds to individual needs and personal taste over and above trends or her own preferences.
From beach houses to stately homes, highlights have been reworking curtains by John Fowler for a large country house, designing interiors for a private estate in Perugia, and more recently a safari lodge in Kenya.

She lives in Hampshire in a rambling house with a husband, cats and various lodgers.

Jan Sherwood

Director and Lead Designer

about us Jan

Jan has over 30 years experience as a textile designer working both with major manufacturers and creating her own designs. Jan began her career at Winchester School of Art studying print, weave and knit at BA level and many of her designs have been sold for weave as well as print and a variety of other applications including (but not limited to!) ceramics, rugs, flooring, bedlinen and fashion fabrics.

She has also taught at secondary and degree level in Hampshire and Buckinghamshire and as a visiting professional at her alma mater Winchester School of Art masters course. (the rest of us here at Sherwood + Morgan have learnt much from her extensive knowledge.)

Jan is a keen artist and printmaker which is often reflected in her designs.   She usually designs by hand but has two decades of CAD experience and combines both methods within her work.  Jan produces a range of greeting cards and hand printed prints which are sold under the name, ‘The Creativity Box’.

She is inspired by a lust for travel (she lived in Trinidad for a while ) and a love for the natural world. She lives in a beautiful cottage in Hampshire full of family and animals.
