Welcome to my new venture in Surface Pattern Design. You will find whimsical, vintage style floral motifs, cross stitch and prints bursting with fresh playfulness.
Please check out my first pattern design collection called Blooming & Becoming.
Inspiration comes from nostalgic memories of my grandmother’s and mother’s sewing, embroidery and quilting. These memories are married with vibrant notes of beauty from our acreage in the majestic Canadian prairies.
I am also fascinated with bees, as hard workers, helping to create the beauty we enjoy. Some of my past work included few years with apiaries as well. The image of working hard to create beauty is not lost on me as a theme in my work as well.
Excitement starts to form when I think of the process from start to finish. Admiring the beauty of my surroundings on our acreage includes walks, taking photos and picking wildflowers and even weeds.
From there I develop a habit of sketching as many of the flowers that I have found. I also scan items I have collected and put them into multiple editing processes.
The theme for my collections comes from my personal journey of accomplishing my dream of being a surface pattern designer. Growth and enjoying the journey are themes that are woven into my pattern design names. I can see my patterns on fabric, paper goods and wallpaper.
I look forward to continuing to create two more pattern collections this year in the hopes of building a stunning portfolio for future work in surface pattern design.
