Welcome! My name is Angela Kilpatrick aka Willowberry Studio. I am a textile & surface pattern designer just outside of Memphis, Tennessee.
I love designing unique mix and match print & pattern collections. Perhaps my fascination with the past and other cultures is why 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. Toby, the dog in the picture, was 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 & license work to a wide variety of clients and manufacturers. If you would like to see my portfolio and find out about new work fill out the form below with your area of interest.
