After much experimentation I think I finally have a new direction. I'm loving and have always loved sketching very loosely in ink, I've taken that loose style and adapted it to the bright, bold and large loosely drawn shapes. I think I've been quite stuck because I was forcing detailed imagery which is not my forte and never has been. I quite like the freedom here and how happy the colours are.
Who says Tuesdays aren't great!

I suppose I strayed from my pattern design self for a while because well I just did! I looked around my house and things and my love of patterns is everywhere in my home and life. For the first time in a long time I'm designing patterns that I love. Thanks to the Lilla Rogers Make Art that Sells e-course, my love of pattern and surface design has been re-ignited. I designed my Fancy Folk ceramic surface designs today. The bold patterns made me happy to look at.

I'm very happy to announce that I will be selling work this Saturday at the Toronto Indie Arts Market. Please come and support local artists and craftspeople this Saturday if you have a moment. Partial admission proceeds will go to a great local organization Not Far from the Tree, which picks and distributes all the fruit trees that people cannot harvest themselves and puts them to good use.
