Come visit me in New York May 20-22, 2018
at the Blueprint Surface Design & Print show.
I'll be at Booth # 27.
Are you looking for a textile and/or surface pattern designer?
I love designing unique mix and match print & pattern collections. I strive to create timeless designs with a hint of nostalgia using textures and hand drawn elements.
Nature is a huge inspiration for me, I love walking in the woods and usually have my hands full of all of my finds. My dog Toby, pictured on the left, is one of them. I get everything from color palettes to actual leaves and flowers that I press and use in my designs. Travel and getting lost rummaging around old antique stores also inspire me. I like to try different techniques in my art. I hand draw, use scratch board, take photos, carve out stamps, draw on my ipad, paint textures, make rubbings, anything I can think of. In the end everything always ends up in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop where I can edit sketches, scans & photos and assemble them into patterns.
I've been fortunate to sell my work to a wide variety of clients and manufacturers. I currently have licensing agreements with Unique Industries, DesignScapes, Tuesday Morning, Current Media Group, Chartwell Studio and private label bolt fabric companies.
