patterns galore!

Hi - So maybe you know... but I am looking to venture into the world of surface pattern design and art licensing. I recently completed a wonderful class from Pattern Observer (by Michelle Fifis) called The Sellable Sketch 2. In this class I completed 3 collections for 3 markets - The Apparel Market, Quilt Market and Home Decor Market. As I grow as a pattern designer I am trying to incorporate my love of design with drawing and printmaking. I had so much fun creating these. I am looking forward to visiting Surtex in May and seeing many of my former fabulous MATS classmates (& new friends) show their beautiful art works... And here's hoping that in 2015 I can be there in some fashion as well.


Happy Halloween! So… Week 3 of my MATS class brings me to the wide world of scrapbooking. Shown here are hand drawn and inked drawings which could be used for stickers elements and patterns for complimentary coordinating card stock. Say cheese! (but not cheesy!) :)
