I do love an all-blue pattern design! My newest design (on the left) is called "Berry-luscious" and I designed it to accompany my "Three Little Birds" design which I posted about a few days ago. I envision these together for home decor (armchair with pillows? wallpaper?), on super fun giftware, for gorgeous apparel, or as the start of a fantastic fabric collection...Contact me if you are interested in licensing these designs for your products!
When I'm working in my studio I often get distracted by little movements in the bushes outside my windows, usually caused by cute little gorgeous birds...So this new design is me trying to capture them in pattern! If you would like to follow along with more of my recent work, I invite you to check out my Instagram!
I recently did a series of these Folk Floral designs, and I ended up submitting this one for this week's Spoonflower Folk Art Tea Towel Design Challenge! There really are so many wonderful designs this week! I just voted! If you would like to cast your vote, check out the Voting Page!

This week's Spoonflower design challenge is "Neutral Retreat", the idea for this challenge was to create a larger-scale pattern for cozy bedding...I think my "Hellebores" pattern design in this Vintage colour palette does the trick! Check out the Voting Page (and all 859! entries, some of which I'm not sure I would call "neutral" though, maybe mine is borderline!)
Bronze, Rose, Forest and Spearmint...the four colours in this week's Spoonflower "Limited Colour Palette" Design Challenge (I added optional white too!) Here is my entry, a 1970s inspired floral I call "Bohemia"! With thanks also to the MIID Live Hub for the retro-themed inspiration! Check out the tons of amazing eye candy designs and vote your faves (until July 16)...Link to the Voting Page!
After taking the Create Collections course from Victoria Johnson Create Explore and creating my "Bugology" Collection (check out the #createcollections hashtag on IG for more designs created during this class!), I couldn't resist designing another collection on the theme of "birds, butterflies and blooms"! So here is my "Palace Walls" Collection partially inspired by all the gorgeous colours and patterned textiles I've seen on several trips to India!
Sometimes I have patterns that I love but feel the need to "revisit" by either changing some of the layouts of the motifs or maybe, just going wild with a re-colour! My folk-inspired "El Campo" Collection is a wonderful example of this! I re-arranged the motifs in two of the patterns and gave it a completely new, bright and happy colour palette. I would love to know what you think of this collection now!
This is the beginning of a brand new pattern design collection featuring gorgeous birds and flowers in luscious, warm colours. My inspirations for this collection were: Indian textiles, a bird figurine souvenir I picked up in Japan, and food (yup, photos of limes, red peppers and mushrooms posted in The Colour Gang for this month’s food styling inspiration theme started off the colour palette!) You never know where inspiration will come from...
These first designs are now available to license (more from this new collection coming soon!)
I decided to enter my "Pink Flamingos" pattern design in this week's Spoonflower "Paint By Numbers" Design Challenge because it reminds me of all those black velvet paintings...remember those? You can link to the Voting Page here to see all the entries!
