About the Designer

J. Thomson

Studio Ten Design is the creation of artist/designer Jay Thomson. 

Now based in Norfolk, Virginia, Jay spent more than 20 years in Philadelphia, PA. He has designed surface patterns for the Spoonflower and Zazzle online marketplaces for over ten years. His interest in surface design grew from a desire to learn how to make his own clothing, since nothing in the stores available at the time suited his style. For over twenty years, he's been making his own shirts and other apparel items. 

Now his designs are available printed on a wide variety of fabrics for home and apparel, wallpaper, home goods and gift ware.
