My Etsy shop has reopened!

My Etsy shop has finally reopened! Redesigned with my new logo and fun new art I have been working on these last few months! Currently I have added only ten special items. The shop has been revamped with a quality over quantity motto, so only those items made with the most love will be posted! Please check out the relaunched shop!

I'm on the Moyo Directory!

As some of my fellow Make Art That Sells alumni, I have decided to join the Moyo Directory!
This is a brand new website for you all surface designers wanting to get noticed (me included) and showcase your talent. For those of you that don't have websites yet this is a great way to get noticed. You just upload work quickly and set up a profile into a template. I'm still working on customizing my profile to be just the way I want but I'm almost there. One of my goals this year is to get my work out there, noticed and get a steady stream of clients coming in as well as connecting to my fellow designers. I haven't yet seen a website connecting all of us pattern geeks together, so share the love!
This profile took no time to put together

Flowers Allover!

It's been a long time since I've done a floral. I went through the whole process of sketching my pattern on paper and then tracing it in illustrator. I'm finding that I like to layout my ideas by hand and then execute the final product on the computer.
 I want a flowy summer skirt in this pattern or maybe a scarf.What do you think?

Geometric Fun

Geometric Patterns are so much fun to do. The repetitive action of arranging fun, bright shapes is very soothing. Some bright colours and shapes to make a grey and snowy January more bright!
